Tablet Pen: Literary Landscapes from the Modern Middle East (Hardback) - hardcover

[EAN: 9780393065855], Neubuch, [PU: WW Norton Co, United States], Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The countries that stretch along the broad horizons of the Middle East-from Morocco to Iran, from Turkey to Pakistan-boast different cultures, different languages, and different religions. Yet the literary landscape of this dynamic part of the world has been bound together not by borders and nationalities, but by a common experience of Western imperialism. Keenly aware of the collected scars left by a legacy of colonial rule, the acclaimed writer Reza Aslan, with a team of four regional editors and seventy-seven translators, cogently demonstrates with Tablet and Pen how literature can, in fact, be used to form identity and serve as an extraordinary chronicle of the disrupted histories of the region. Acting with Words Without Borders, which fosters international exchange through translation and publication of the world s finest literature, Aslan has purposefully situated this volume in the twentieth century, beyond the familiar confines of the Ottoman past, believing that the writers who have emerged in the last hundred years have not received their full due. This monumental collection, therefore, of nearly two hundred pieces, including short stories, novels, memoirs, essays and works of drama-many of them presented in English for the first time-features translated works from Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Turkish. Organized chronologically, the volume spans a century of literature-from the famed Arab poet Khalil Gibran to the Nobel laureates Naguib Mahfouz and Orhan Pamuk, from the great Syrian-Lebanese poet Adonis to the grand dame of Urdu fiction, Ismat Chughtai-connected by the extraordinarily rich tradition of resplendent cultures that have been all too often ignored by the Western canon. By shifting America s perception of the Middle Eastern world away from religion and politics, Tablet and Pen evokes the splendors of a region through the voices of its writers and poets, whose literature tells an urgent and liberating story. With a wealth of contextual information that places the writing within the historical, political, and cultural breadth of the region, Tablet Pen is transcendent, a book to be devoured as a single sustained narrative, from the first page to the last. Creating a vital bridge between two estranged cultures, this is that rare anthology: cohesive, affecting, and informing (Publishers Weekly).

ID: 12678524927

[EAN: 9780393065855], Neubuch, [PU: Norton. 1 Cloth(s)], TABLET & PEN, Jacket, Spanning a century of modern Middle Eastern literature—from the Arab poet Khalil Gibran to the Nobel laureates Naguib Mahfouz and Orhan Pamuk, from the great Syrian-Lebanese poet Adonis to the grand dame of Urdu fiction, Ismat Chughtai—this treasury reveals a people of diverse religions, languages, and cultures, yet united by the legacy of Western colonial rule. Los Angeles–based Iranian-American Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, presents nearly 200 short stories, poems, excerpts from novels, memoirs, essays, and works of drama with the intent of creating a bridge between our estranged cultures."This landmark collection of writings from the modern Middle East reminds us of the region's magnificent and proud literary tradition. That would be gift enough. But the powerful voices within these pages also guide us past clichéd perceptions of the region as a hotbed for militants and extremists and bring to life the hopes, aspirations, and struggles—indeed the common humanity—of one of the world's most diverse and fascinating regions."—Khaled Hosseini"This mammoth anthology goes a long way toward achieving its equally mammoth goal: to shift American views of the Middle East away 'from the ubiquitous images of terrorists and fanatics.'. An impressive success that spans vast regions of time and territory, this is that rare anthology: cohesive, affecting, and informing."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"This unique and splendid gathering of poems, memoirs, fiction, and essays, many translated into English for the first time from Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Urdu, covers the past century of frenetic disruption and change in works of beauty, dissent, irony, and romance. Of particular interest are women writers. Parvin E'tesami (1907–41), of Iran, wrote in a poem titled 'Iranian Women': 'Her life she spent in isolation; she died in isolation. / What was she then if not a prisoner?' Born in 1940, Kishwar Naheed, of Pakistan, winner of the Nelson Mandela Award, writes, 'It is we sinful women / who come out raising the banner of truth.' Many truths are brought to light in this remarkably energetic and gloriously multicultural volume from a crucial part of the world."—Booklist 657
