The project aims to reconstruct the biography of late poet Ahmed Obeida, who set himself along with his books and papers on fire in August 1974. No trace of his short life exists and no one knows the fate of his poems, which everyone thought burned with him. The project reveals, as it attempts to follow the trail left by the poet, facts about his life and his poetry endeavor.
