Riassunto: In this unique book, Kamal Abdel-Malek probes into the various situations where Arab and Jew encounter each other in the modern Palestinian fiction, poetry, and film. The book explores the violent confrontations and moments of reconciliation in these encounters. In its bold survey of these encounters, the book does not shy away from presenting the banality of evil while at the same time it unapologetically celebrates the triumphal and radiant feats of the human spirit when blood-enemies recognize their common humanity.
Kamal Abdel-Malek, a native of Egypt, is Associate Professor of Arabic Literatures at the American University of Sharjah. He also taught at Princeton and Brown universities and is the recipient of the prestigious Wriston Fellowship at Brown University for excellence in teaching and research. He has several publications on Arabic literature including A Study of the Vernacular Poetry of Ahmad Fuad Nigm (1990), Muhammad in the Modern Egyptian Popular Ballad (1995), Celebrating Muhammad (with Ali Asani and Annemarie Shcimmel, 1995 ), Israeli and Palestinian Identities in History and Literature (with David Jacobson, 1999), Tradition, Modernity, and Postmodernity in Arabic Literature (with Wael Hallaq, 2000), and the pioneering America in an Arab Mirror: Images of America in Arabic Travel Literature, 1895-1995 (2000). He is also a contributor to the authoritative Cambridge Guide to Theater and the Cambridge History of Arabic Literature series.
