‘I lived once in a grave’: Palestinian writers respond to the attack on Gaza

Blockades surrounding the Gaza strip prevent essential supplies - food, building materials, medicines - from crossing the border. But rarely do we think of these blockades as cultural and literary barriers, which stifle the voices of those living in the Strip. Decca Muldowney considers a range of Palestinian writers and poets, and meditates upon the power of literature to represent human experience, even across borders.
