From Library Journal
The development of modern Arabic drama parallels the independence movement in Arab nations that followed World War II. Because of government censorship, Arab playwrights have often used symbolism and historical settings to convey their messages safely. Drawing together 12 plays from Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Tunisia, this collection fairly represents the range of playwrighting that has evolved under these conditions over the past 30 years. Included are verse plays such as Abd al-Sabur's Night Traveler, historical dramas like Ali Salim's The Comedy of Oedipus, and Sadallah Wannus's political drama, The King's the King. Mahmud Diyab's Strangers Don't Drink Coffee deals with the effect of totalitarianism on an ordinary citizen. This solid collection recognizes the richness and diversity of Arabic drama and will be a useful addition to literary collections in both academic and public libraries, especially those serving Arabic populations.?Howard E.
