Al-sard al-šaffāf: qirā'a fī a'māl Muntaṣir al-Qaffāš

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] A critical study of the works of the Egyptian writer Muntaṣir al-Qaffāš, representative of an entire generation of Arab writers, reveals how the supposed opposition of postmodernism between dream and reality, real and imaginary, ordinary and fantastic, has no foundation. In other words, there are no two different worlds facing each other. Instead, there is a single individual who has lost himself in the folds of his manifold self. There is a "we" instead of an "I" and this multiple self lives at the same time in both worlds, without contradictions.
