Post-Gibran anthology of new Arab American writingUser Review - Book Verdict
The author of The Prophet and the best-known Arab American literary figure, the late Kahlil Gibran would be proud of a new generation represented in this anthology of more than 40 writers and poets. After more than a century of Arab immigration to the United States, Arab American literature in English remains largely obscure, to say the least. This collection of previously unpublished poetry, drama, fiction, creative prose, and literary and cultural criticism features a range of writers, both seasoned and upcoming. While the Middle East and the old country are often reference points, themes are not limited in this regard. Most of the contributors have been influenced by their ethnic and cultural background, current political events, and the American experience, while some of the writers included are not Arab at all but identify with Arab culture. This ambitious, richly illustrated volume is both a celebration of an ethnic experience and a window through which to view Arab American literature still in its infancy. Although the brief introduction could have offered more historic and cultural background to an American audience largely ill informed about the Arab American community, this wonderful collection is recommended for all literature collections.
