Description : This book investigates the issue of literary translation from Arabic to English and its various challenges, focusing on the problem of linguistic and cultural losses it suffers. Using the latest research in semiotic and translation theories through a selection of examples illustrating her investigation, the author introduces a meticulous analysis of the different kinds of losses suffered in the practice of literary translation. The book focuses on the key issue of equivalence - linguistic and cultural and underscores how the lack of equivalence makes it always more challenging to translate metaphors and culture-bound expressions across languages, opening the door to all kinds of cultural distortions and linguistic and cultural losses in the translation process.

Description : The study of Arabic literature is blossoming. This book provides a comprehensive theoretical framework to help research this highly prolific and diverse production of contemporary literary texts. Based on the achievements of historical poetics, in particular those of Russian formalism and its theoretical legacy, this framework offers flexible, transparent, and unbiased tools to understand the relevant contexts within the literary system. The aim is to enhance our understanding of Arabic literature, throw light on areas of literary production that traditionally have been neglected, and stimulate others to take up the fascinating challenge of mapping out and exploring them.

Description : This is one of the first books in English to explore Arab responses to Western culture and values in modern Arab literature. Through in-depth research El-Enany examines the attitudes as expressed mainly through works of fiction written by Arab authors during the twentieth, and, to a lesser extent, nineteenth century. It constitutes an original addition to the age-old East-West debate, and is particularly relevant to the current discussion on Islam and the West. Alongside raising highly topical questions about stereotypical ideas concerning Arabs and Muslims in general, the book explores representations of the West by the foremost Arab intellectuals over a two-century period, up to the present day, and will appeal to those with an interest in Islam, the Middle East, nationalism and the so-called ‘Clash of Civilizations’.
