Note "This guide to modern Arabic literature in English translation features not only a comprehensive bibliography but also chapters on fiction, drama, poetry and autobiography. Altoma assesses the progress made towards a wider reception of Arabic writing throughout the Anglophone world, with particular emphasis on Naguib Mahfouz, one of Arabic literature's luminaries, and on poetry. Modern Arabic Literature in Translation is a tool for research and teaching - in the West, certainly, but also in the Arab world, where the translation of Arabic literature into other languages has been of considerable concern for more than a century."--BOOK JACKET
