This four-part book focuses on the voice of women in prin­ci­pally the Arab and Islamic world, a world which because of demo­gra­phics has become almost universal. By employing the symbol of the red pome­gra­nates the authors symbo­lize a woman's nurtu­ring, life-sustai­ning, and loving powers while simul­ta­neously extol­ling her grand physi­ca­lity and sexual appeal.
In addi­tion, this is a book about love, both physical and spiri­tual, and how its presence serves to regu­late human life, while its absence exacer­bates human prob­lems.
In either case, the language of discourse is the medium of poetry, discourse in the verna­cular being totally inade­quate to achieve the goal of explai­ning and expres­sing love's role and goal in human exis­tence.
The role of love and the female poets, ancient and modern, who have written about it are herein praised, enshrined, extolled and accorded their proper place in the history of poetic commu­ni­ca­tion.
