"Arabic Literature: Postmodern Perspectives" introduces the work of twenty-nine pivotal authors from the Arab world writing in Arabic, English, French, and Hebrew.
Organised around the central themes of memory, place and gender, each of which is discussed in an introductory essay, this volume provides a critical framework for Arabic literature, locating it alongside other contemporary world literature.
The contributors argue that Arabic literature engages with the global postmodern condition without denying its own traditions. As such, "Arabic Literature: Postmodern Perspectives" 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.
