Yehia Jaber, who fought with the Communists during Lebanon’s long civil war, is now one of Lebanon’s most acclaimed poets, celebrated for the bitter, comedic work he often performs like stand-up comedy. He takes us on a journey across Lebanon, and into his past, to explain why this former fighter now battles for change with nothing but words.
