Growth and change in the prose and poetry of the Arabic-speaking world from the time of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798 to the present day. This literature reflects the changing sense of personal and national identity and such shared experiences as foreign rule, concerns for the role of women in society, the long Arab-Israeli conflict, and a search by many writers for new forms of literary expression, including drama.
