Teaching my mother how to give birth by Warsan Shire( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What elevates 'teaching my mother how to give birth', what gives the poems their disturbing brilliance, is Warsan Shire's ability to give simple, beautiful eloquence to the veiled world where sensuality lives in the dominant narrative of Islam; reclaiming the more nuanced truths of earlier times - as in Tayeb Salih's work - and translating to the realm of lyric the work of the likes of Nawal El Saadawi. As Rumi said, Love will find its way through all languages on its own ; in 'teaching my mother how to give birth, ' Warsan Shire's debut pamphlet, we witness the unearthing of a poet who finds her way through all preconceptions to strike the heart directly. 'teaching my mother how to give birth' represents a refuge for womanhood and for exile, a chant of praise for resilience, a claiming of - and fierce pride in - motherhood with all its joys and challenges

Our men do not belong to us by Warsan Shire( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our Men Do Not Belong to Us is the opening noise of a poet who has already gained a significant amount of praise for her poetry. Warsan Shire's poems are direct, but they are works of such delicate construction and layered insight that one quickly realizes what seems 'direct' is neccesarily wholly indirect, questioning, uncertain, and vulnerable." -- Book flap

The latest volume in Penguin Modern Poets series - moving and unflinchingly honest poems from three different cultures about experiences of the female body, the family, sexual politics and conflict. Your Family, Your Body features the work of Malika Booker, the Guyanese-British writer and performer behind London- and Chicago-based collective Malika's Kitchen; the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sharon Olds, one of America's most brilliant, beloved and candid voices; and Warsan Shire, the award-winning poet and first ever Young Poetry Laureate of London who also lent her words to Beyonce's visual album Lemonade. Inspired by Penguin's enormously successful '60s series of the same name, the Penguin Modern Poets are succinct, collectible, lovingly-assembled guides to the richness and diversity of contemporary poetry, from the UK, America and beyond. Every volume brings together representative selections from the work of three poets now writing, allowing the seasoned poetry fan and the curious reader alike to encounter our most exciting new voices
