Amina Said is one of the main Tunisian writers working today. Conceived in the withering days of French lead in 1953 to a French mother and Tunisian father, she was instructed in Paris and an understudy and instructor of English writing in Tunisian colleges. This experience furnishes her with a remarkable foundation and affectability to inquiries of place and character.
Today Said is situated in Paris and frequently shows up at global scholarly celebrations. She has delivered 14 accumulations of verse since 1980 in addition to two accumulations of current re-indicators of Tunisian folktales written in French. The topics of her work incorporate the importance of place, the part of the writer and her association with dialect.
In 2011, an English version of her current works was distributed under the title ‘The Present Tense of the World: Poems 2000-2009.’
