The subject of autobiography has been a dominant theme in literary theory and criticism in recent years. As a consequence, the parameters of what does or does not constitute autobiography in literature have been greatly extended.
This volume presents the results of the latest research on this subject by leading experts on modern Arabic literature from Europe and the Arab world. As such, it questions the view that autobiography has not been central to the literary tradition of the Arabs, a view which seems to suggest that autobiography is the preserve of West European Renaissance Man or Woman and their descendants.
The chapters cover a broad spectrum of autobiographical material and range in time from the seventeenth century to the present day. They include travelogues as a category of autobiographical writing, as well as a wide variety of the more traditional retrospective prose histories of the self.
One of the Arab world's leading novelists, Edwar al-Kharrat, gives a personal account of fiction and autobiography; and novels, drama and poetry are all considered within the book's overall theme. Women writers and Palestinian authors are also given due consideration.
"Writing the Self "is a provocative re-evaluation of the theory and practice of autobiography in modern Arabic literature and beyond.
