Description

Series: Modern Arabic Writing. Paperback: 168 pages. I felt the last part of the book, the last chapter ironically enough, not as easy to follow. In any case- good book by an observant and keen author

Studying Modern Arabic Literature.

This chapter examines the lives and writings of a few Mizrahi intellectuals who, like Badawi's students, succeeded despite the challenges they faced as Jewish Arabs. In 2002, an Iraqi Muslim named Samir (b. 1955) directed Forget Baghdad, a documentary about Iraqi writers in Israel. Having heard so much about the Jews and the role they had played in his country, he wanted to know what happened to them after they left in the 1950s. Studying Modern Arabic Literature.

A new Arabic writing is emerging from this back and forth between virtuality and print, the novel and the blog, and Arabic and English. In these writings, we find English words left in the Latin script or at times transliterated; stream of consciousness; the fragmentation of the narrator's function; repetition; and various subversions of narrative structure. In many instances, the difference between the blog and the novel is unclear.

Charting Aisha's path through adolescence and young adulthood up to the present, her story is told through a series of flashbacks, anecdotes, and glimpses of the past, all bound up with a strong, often strident, always compelling worldview that takes in Morocco, its politics, people, and traditions, Islam, and marriage. Male-female relationships feature strongly in the narrative, and by exposing us to Aisha's troubled romantic encounters, Abouzeid uncovers the shifting male/female roles within the Morocco of her lifetime. Many aspects of Moroccan society are also explored through the other clashes of the modern and the traditional in Aisha's life. The workplace and corruption, the struggle for women's rights, the clash between Islamic and Western values as well as with the older practices of sorcery and witchcraft, and the conflict between colonial and native language use are all intertwined in a narrative that is both forceful and often poetic. Through a series of tales of emotional disasters, the reader becomes aware not only of Aisha's frustrations but also of her deep commitment to her country and her struggle to defeat suffering, uphold justice, and retain a fierce independence as a woman and a clarity of conviction in her life. Leila Abouzeid is a pioneer among her Moroccan contemporaries in that she writes in Arabic rather than in French and is the first Moroccan woman writer of literature to be translated into English.
