Literary Autobiography and Arab National Struggles

Tahia Abdel Nasser

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in Modern Arabic Literature

In memoirs, Arab writers have invoked solitude in moments of deep public involvement. Focusing on Taha Hussein, Sonallah Ibrahim, Assia Djebar, Latifa al-Zayyat, Mahmoud Darwish, Mourid Barghouti, Edward Said, Haifa Zangana, and Radwa Ashour, this book reads a range of autobiographical forms, sources, and affinities with other literatures.
