About this title


In this unique book, Kamal Abdel-Malek probes into the various situations where Arab and Jew encounter each other in the modern Palestinian fiction, poetry, and film. The book explores the violent confrontations and moments of reconciliation in these encounters. In its bold survey of these encounters, the book does not shy away from presenting the banality of evil while at the same time it unapologetically celebrates the triumphal and radiant feats of the human spirit when blood-enemies recognize their common humanity.


'Kamal Abdel-Malek, well known to scholars in the field of Arabic literature, turns his attention to the confrontation of Israeli and Palestinian interests and cultures within a small but much contested terrain. The current work, grounded in the theories of literature and cultural studies, examines the ways in which each of the two traditions explores the "other" through the media of literature and film. There are excellent studies of major figures in both milieus, including Habibi, Kanafani, Fadwa Tuqan, Sahar Khalifa, and Mahmud Darwish in the Palestinian context, and Yehoshua and Amichai on the Israeli. The work is well referenced, and should be a useful source of critical insight for all those interested in exploring the central space lying between the extremes (and extremists) of both sides.' Roger Allen, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania
