  • In My Childhood : A Study of Arabic Autobiography
  • 1997
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The purpose of this study is to analyse the development of a modern form of Arabic prose literature, the autobiography of childhood, and explore its generic characteristics. The basis of this investigation is a representative corpus of Arabic autobiographies rich in childhood material published between 1929 and 1988 by twenty writers from Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Morocco.The study adopts a formal approach to autobiography. The literary genre is understood as a "pact" between writer and reader concluded by way of specific "generic markers" in the text, which the study sets out to describe. Starting from a wider sample of autobiographical texts it contrasts autobiography with its contemporary adjacent genres and historical cognates in Arabic literature. Special interest is accorded to the divergence of autobiography from the novel.The study goes on to discuss in what sense the autobiography of childhood is independent of the type which narrates the author's adulthood as well. To this end it investigates the variation of time-span in a number of life-stories, the existence of a characteristic "plot" in them and typical beginnings and endings. Further, it analyses the literary spectrum in terms of narrative technique and style.The last chapters of the thesis present interpretative readings of the works of the corpus against a historical background. Here, the literary trends and tendencies of the texts are outlined in greater detail.The study reaches the conclusion that childhood autobiography is a distinct genre in modern Arabic literature with a tradition of its own, but that there also exist many mixed forms of autobiography that relativize this independence. It also identifies three typical themes of the genre developed by the Arab authors to express their personal identity: the eternal imprint of their birthplace, escape from poverty and rebellion against the family.

  • In the Presence of Absence: Mahmoud Darwish's Testament
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Journal of Arabic and Islamic Studies. - 0806-198X. ; 8:2008, s. 11-25
  • Tidskriftsartikel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish is well known for his intertextual playfulness and inventiveness, and indeed, in one of his last books, Fi Hadrat al-ghiyab (In the Presence of Absence, 2006) he alludes to classical Arabic poetry, the Quran and his own previous oeuvre. Drawing on a celebrated qasida by the Umayyad poet Malik Ibn al-Rayb as his model, Darwish composed this work as a funeral speech for himself. Essentially, it is an oration in prose, but snatches of poetry also appear in a stylistic pattern where rhetorical figures abound. Speaking from the barzakh between life and death, the poet reflects on his wordly existence from cradle to grave. Published less than two years before Darwish death in August 2008, the text has the double character of prediction and testament. The thesis of this article is that the death of the author adds meaning to it not by his absence, but paradoxically, by his increased presence as an unavoidable point of reference and source of identification for the reader.

  • Searching for the Navel: Love Voices in the Poetry of Adonis
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Desire, Pleasure and the Taboo: New Voices and Freedom of Expression in Contemporary Arabic Literature / edited by Sobhi Boustani [and others].. - Pisa : Fabrizio Serra Editore. - 9788862277020 ; , s. 169-183
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this article I examine a work of love poetry by one of the key figures of Arab modernism, Adonis (b. 1930). The aim is to study the textual voices in his late collection "Awwal al-jasad aakhir al-baHr" (Beginning of the Body End of the Sea, 2003) and compare them with those that speak in his earlier works. Explicit representations of sexual desire and pleasure have been a standing feature of Adonis's poetry throughout his career. I argue that although the poet expresses some fresh visions and original emotions in "Awwal al-jasad", the language, imagery and themes echo previous texts remarkably much. Ultimately this continuity in Adonis's production leads me to question the notion that sexual outspokenness is an altogether new phenomenon in modern Arabic literature and suggest some relevant historical links.
