This volume contains the majority of the papers delivered to a colloquium on Modern Arabic Literature held in July 1974. Their range and variety pay tribute to the achievements of a literature which, in its modern forms, has matured with impressive rapidity since the latter years of the 19th Century. All the major literary categories are represented here and represent accurately the strength of its tradition in Arabic Literature. After the discussion of general trends in Arabic poetry in the 'twenties and 'thirties, the papers on the post-war period present the same combination of a close citique of an individual poet. This edition includes thirteen essays on a variety of Arabic literature, inclusing poetry, plays and dramtic interpretation. 202p (Aris and Phillips 1975)
