Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies. "Well-versed and well-read in Sufi mysticism, Joris appears throughout these captivating meditations as a nomadizing poet-scholar a poeta doctus in the classical sense: whether it is the manners, or pockets of the desert, Baghdad bombings, or Hallaj's set of stations that caught his eye (a poeta vates?) and fired up the engine of his writing, Joris poeta faber also always guides us back to the material flux of language that constitutes these meditations." Peter Cockelbergh"
