Alexandrian Cosmopolitanism

An Archive

Hala Halim

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • An excellent example of writing back from the colonial areas, comparing canonical Western modernists with indigenous Egyptian modernists who were approaching the same questions differently.
  • A capacious account of a city that has long been associated with cosmopolitanism-which ends up also being a critique of cosmopolitanism.
  • Discusses Cavafy, Forster, Durrell, and the almost unknown Levantine-Syrian writer Bernard de Zoghreb.
