Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article deals with some aspects of prison literature from the Middle East and mainly in Arabic. Prison literature may be literature written by prisoners either during imprisonment, or after imprisonment. It may also include literature by non-prisoners who are writing in a society where imprisonment is a constant threat for political, religious and moral reasons. Special attention is given to the situation in modern Syria, and the poetry of Muhammad al-Maghut (1934-2006) is high-lighted.
