Books Info:

Arabic Literature free pdf "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. This collection is ideal for students of Arabic and comparative literature and equally of interest to general readers. Authors covered include Rabih Alameddine, Hoda Barakat, Tahar Ben Jelloun, Mahmoud Darwish, Assia Djebar and Elias Khoury. It provides an extensive list of further reading to complement the work.
