ARAB 81.02 The Arabic Novel: Narrating Tradition, Change, and Identity

This seminar examines the modern Arabic narrative tradition through the close reading of a number of key texts by major twentieth-century authors. It will consider how perceptions of tradition, change, and identity are articulated and represented in this genre. Examination of themes, literary styles, and assumptions pertaining to the function of literature and to the nature of human experience will be undertaken. Readings for the seminar will be drawn from the works of Naguib Mahfouz (Egypt), Tayyib Salih (Sudan), Emile Habibi (Palestine), Hanan Al-Shaykh (Lebanon), Leila Abouzeid (Morocco), and others.
