News at Eleven: The siege referred to a condition where every

aspect of our lives is subject to scrutiny and inhibition whether real or imagined, literal or metaphorical.

It is not only Palestine that is evoked in Darwish's poetry, but the entire experience of exile as a human condition of the soul and a major theme in literature. Even in his writings about love, Darwish was capable of summoning exile to enrich his poetry. This could be most enjoyed in his poem "She's Alone in the Evening."
