The essays, which discuss authors in a variety of literary genres and across the spectrum of the region concerned-from Iraq in the East to Tunisia in the West-provide clear evidence of the gradually changing roles of the indigenous and the imported which are an intrinsic feature of the movement known in Arabic as al-bahada (cultural revival) and the way in which Arab litterateurs chose to respond to the inspiration that such changes inevitably engendered. --The chapters end abruptly whenever al-GhuzulT runs out of citations; there are no concluding statements or transitional passages. The contents of the first chapter may serve as an illustration of al-GhuzulTa#39;s practice as an anthologist.
