The Repertoire of Being is Maryam A. Wajdi’s debut poetry anthology, depicting her perspective on life and her encounters with others through an everchanging lens from the eyes of a child to a young woman. The poems are divided into sections, Kin and Childhood MemoriesLove and Its Many Forms and Stories Stemmed from Other Stories, where themes of love, nostalgia, mysticism and aesthetics are recurrent throughout. Wajdi’s use of colors, imagery, and fictional personas create an imaginary dimension, delivering readers into the depth of her thoughts and darkest emotions. This collection paints visually and auditorily stimulating pieces of Wajdi’s innermost vulnerabilities and experiences with love, life and loss.
