9781474421393: The Unmaking of the Arab Intellectual: Prophecy, Exile and the Nation (Edinburgh Studies in Modern Arabic Literature)

In this book Zeina G. Halabi examines the figure of the intellectual as prophet, national icon, and exile in contemporary Arabic literature and film. Staging a comparative dialogue with writers and critics such as Elias Khoury, Edward Said, Jurji Zaidan, and Mahmoud Darwish, Halabi focuses on new articulations of loss, displacement, and memory in works by Rabee Jaber, Elia Suleiman, Rawi Hage, Rashid al-Daif, and Seba al-Herz. She argues that the ambivalence and disillusionment with the role of the intellectual in contemporary representations operate as a productive reclaiming of the 'political' in an allegedly apolitical context. The Unmaking of the Arab Intellectual offers the critical tools to understand the evolving relations between the intellectual and power, and the author and the text in the hitherto uncharted contemporary era.

About the Author:


Zeina G. Halabi is Assistant Professor of Arabic Literature and Culture at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She specialises in contemporary literature, music and film with particular interest in questions of loss, dissidence and political commitment.

Review:


"The Unmaking of the Arab Intellectual is one of those rare works
that manages to describe an aesthetic formation - in this case, a generation of
contemporary Arab writers - in order to reflect generatively on the
intersections of history, politics and culture. Accessible and eloquent, this
brilliant book forges new ways of relating to literary pasts and futures." -- Michael Allan, Associate Professor in Comparative Literature, University of Oregon
