Poetry's Voice - Society's Norms: Forms of Interaction Between Middle Eastern Writers and Their Societies
Reichert, 2006 - Literary Criticism - 306 pages

From the contents: Religious Norms Advocating / Domesticating Literary Freedom - Literary Norms and the Travelling of Genres - Linguistic Norms: Writing in the 'Stepmother Tongue' - Gender Norms, Inverted and Subverted - Societal Norms I: The Poet Involved - Societal Norms II: Imagining Communities, Debating the Collective.
