MEDIA REVIEWS

'Fathers and Sons in the Arab Middle East by Dalya Cohen-Mor is a perceptive study of father-son relations in Arab history and contemporary Arab society. Drawing from a wide range of literary sources, from Yahya Haqqi's The Saint's Lamp (with its father figure who sacrifices everything for his son's education), to the troubled childhood and neglect experienced in Hanna Mina's Fragments of Memory, the study encompasses all kinds of familial relationships. Particularly interesting are the different themes explored in poetry and politics, and notably the analogy drawn between father/ruler and son/citizen in the context of political oppression and the recent Arab uprisings (by way, for example, of an analysis of Tunisian rapper El General's "Ra'is Lebled"). The study also sheds light on some of the burdens borne even to this day by fathers and sons living in the Arab world.' Banipal: Magazine for Modern Arab Literature
