Synopsis

This indispensable guide to modern Arabic literature in English translation features not only a comprehensive bibliography but also chapters on fiction, drama, poetry, and autobiography, as well as a special chapter on Iraq's Arabic literature. Through focussing on Najib Mahfuz, one of Arabic Literature's luminaries, and on poetry - a major, if not the major genre of the region - Altoma assesses the progress made towards a wider reception of Arabic writing throughout the Anglophone world. Modern Arabic Literature in Translation is an invaluable tool for research and teaching - in the West, certainly, but also in the Arab world where the translation of Arabic literature into other languages has been of considerable concern for more than a century.
