A man walks past a statue of Mutanabi, a 10th century poet and one of the towering figures of Arabic literature, on the banks of the Tigris river in Baghdad April 5, 2011. Reading books, buying books and discussing books are the defining pleasures of being a Baghdad intellectual, and for generations the life of the mind has orbited around this lane, the booksellers' market of the Iraqi capital. Four years ago, in a blow felt deeply by Iraq's intelligentsia, a car bomb killed 26 people here. Now, the street is again open, guarded and seemingly safe, and jammed every Friday with students, professors and professionals. The street begins, overlooking the Tigris, at the statue of Mutanabi. It runs past ransacked Ottoman-era government buildings into the heart of Baghdad's old town. Picture taken April 5, 2011. To match Feature IRAQ-BOOKS/ REUTERS/Mohammed Ameen (IRAQ - Tags: SOCIETY)
