The poet and novelist Samir Darwish meets Heliopolis University students in a dialogue about poetry and music. Darwish believes that poetry is a form of musical composition. The modern poet makes a harmony between letters, words, sentences, and passages unlike the classical poet who relied on traditional rhyme.
Samir Darwish is one of the prominent poetical faces of the 1980s. He has 15 collections of poems. The first of which was “Kutofoha and Sioufi” (1991) and the last one is “Mirrors of New York”. He also published two novels and a book on political thought.
