9780863566943: Arabic Literature: Postmodern Perspectives

"The coverage of the region is admirable in terms of both geographical spread and literary genre. . . . This collection of articles, carefully grouped around specific themes and the authors who invoke them, is an important contribution to the study of modern Arabic literature."—Professor Roger Allen

Arabic Literature: Postmodern Perspectives introduces the work of twenty-nine pivotal authors from the Arab world writing in Arabic, English, French, and Hebrew. Organized around the central themes of memory, place, and gender, each of which is discussed in an introductory essay, the volume provides a critical framework for Arab writing, locating it alongside contemporary world literature.

The contributors maintain that Arabic literature reflects the Western postmodern condition without denying its own traditions. As such, Arabic Literature paves the way for an important cultural dialogue between East and West.

Authors covered include Adonis, Rabih Alameddine, Hoda Barakat, Tahar Ben Jelloun, Mahmoud Darwish, Assia Djebar, and Elias Khoury.

Angelika Neuwirth is chair of Arabic studies at the Free University of Berlin.

Andreas Pflitsch is a research fellow at the Center for Literary and Cultural Studies in Berlin and teaches Arabic studies at the University of Bamberg and the Free University of Berlin.

Barbara Winckler is a research fellow at the Center for Literary and Cultural Studies in Berlin and teaches modern Arabic literature at the Free University of Berlin.

Review:

'The coverage of the region is admirable in terms of both geographical spread and literary genre - This collection of articles, carefully grouped around specific themes and the authors who invoke them, is an important contribution to the study of modern Arabic literature.' Roger Allen The breadth of this book is matched by its depth and erudition, and its balance of theory and close-reading of key texts which is thoroughly researched and resonate in detail, is admirable. It is an immensely valuable book, extraordinarily intelligent in its conception and design.' Sabry Hafez 'Providing illuminating scholarly references and critical insights, the essays themselves are at once academic and accessible - especially interesting for their attention to both well-known and less familiar Arab authors.' Summing up: Recommended. B. Harlow, University of Texas at Austin. CHOICE March 2011 'Barbara Winckler's study of The Stone of Laughter makes it clear that the themes chosen by the editors as distinctive of Arab postmodernism - the redefinition of the relationship between memory and identity, the relevance of 'interstices' as privileged spaces of literary production, the new awareness of gender as a cultural construction - often intersect in the writing of contemporary Arab authors. The reader's experience of the usefulness of the perspective suggested by these themes confirms the validity of the editors' choice and the critical relevance of the book as an important tool for understanding the new aesthetics of Arabic literature.' Lorenza Casini, Middle Eastern Literatures
