RAMALLAH, Sunday, October 17, 2021 (WAFA) – The Palestinian Ministry of Culture has mourned Palestinian poet Majed Dajani who died of a heart attack yesterday at the age of 71, saying his passing constitutes a loss for the Palestinian poetic scene.
“Today, we bid farewell to one of the most important Palestinian poets who enriched the poetic and cultural scene and one of the effective icons in various walks of life, leaving behind a cultural legacy full of creativity and giving,” the ministry said in a statement mourning Dajani.
Dajani’s most prominent collections of poetry include "Signatures on Children's Notebooks", "I Love You Until the Last Hour" and "A Moon on Our Window".
Dajani also produced dozens of poems about Jerusalem. In 2018, he was honored by the Jerusalem Intellectuals Forum with the award for the best poetry collection, Murals on the Wall of Jerusalem.
