Descripción

After the Lebanese Civil War, many of Lebanon's best known novelists committed themselves to building a "memory for the future." More than twenty years later, Elias Khoury's and Rashid al-Daif's postwar novels rank among the most important texts in contemporary Arabic literature, fomenting a new generation of writers authors to begin writing about the civil war. The Lebanese Post-Civil War Novel: Memory, Trauma, and Capital argues that the Lebanese Post-Civil war novel is a response not so much to trauma, but to the forces at work in the literary field. From the book market to literary prizes to the similarity of the writers' biographies and socio-economic backgrounds, a number of factors worked in favor of novels offering a literary war narrative for Lebanon's secular upper-middle class.
