About this item
Ã¬All who are interested in the varieties and complexities of the relationship between the Arab world and the West in the twentieth century should consult it and ponder the issues that it so provocatively raises.Ã® From the Foreword by Miles L. Bradbury, University of Maryland. Ã¬An innovative book which will be of great interest to anyone working in comparative literature or post-colonialism.Ã®Professor Susan Bassnett, Centre for British & Comparative Cultural Studies, The University of Warwick. This book looks at the English writings of four twentieth-century Anglo-Arab and Arab-American writers: Ameen Rihani, Khalil Jibran, George Antonius and Edward Atiyah. The Introduction investigates: Why should an Arab writer write in English? How do these writers negotiate encoding Arab meanings within an alien discourse? How is Anglo-Arab discourse political, and what are its politics? Does Anglo-Arab writing belong to the category of post-colonial literature?
