On The Palestinian Novel with Bashir Abu-Manneh

palestinian-novel-ghasan

Palestinian writer and activist Ghassan Kanafani.

In this inspiring introduction to modern Palestinian literature, Bashir Abu-Manneh speaks to Razia Iqbal about the work of four key Palestinian writers. He considers Palestinian literature produced after the Nakba, and asks what the Palestinian novel reveals about the Palestinian experience. Through discussing the work of Jabra Ibrahim Jabra, Ghassan Kanafani, Emile Habibi and Sahar Khalifeh, Abu-Manneh looks at the changing ways in which Palestinian writers have responded to and written about the struggle for freedom and justice.

In the question and answer session which follows the talk, discussion moves on to contemporary Palestinian literature and film and to the challenges facing the Palestinian struggle in the context of the current political situations in other Arab countries.

This talk was recorded at The Mosaic Rooms on 30 November 2016. The event marked publication of Bashir Abu-Manneh’s new book The Palestinian Novel.
