Description - Modern Arabic Literature by Paul Starkey

This introduction to modern Arabic literature, from the beginning of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st, develops themes including: the interaction of the classical Arabic literary tradition (and, to a lesser extent, the parallel oral tradition) with new literary forms derived from the West; the interaction between social, political and cultural change in the Middle East and the development of a modern Arabic literary tradition; and the extent to which we are justified in speaking of "modern Arabic literature" rather than, for example, "Egyptian", "Lebanese", or "Tunisian" literature. Covering poetry, prose literature and drama, this book should be ideal for all those requiring an introduction to the subject of Arabic literature.
