Excerpt Tuesday – Occidental Exile – Nasr

Nasr_OccidentalExileDr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr (b. 1933) is a prominent Islamic scholar, philosopher, Sufi spiritual advisor, and professor at George Washington University – he is also an accomplished poet, having published 2 books of poetry. This poem, “Occidental Exile”, is from his collection Poems of the Way. You can read the whole poem here. Collage and composition by me.


  1. If you ever make a print of this piece, please let me know. Deeply moving. What a tribute (expansion?) for the poem. Both are … extraordinary.


    1. Thank you! I will definitely let you know – there are a few pieces I have considered printing – and this is one of them. It was an illustration I had struggled with for a few weeks, so when it finally came together I was thrilled!
