MEDIA REVIEWS

Reviews of previous edition

'Shaheen does well to draw attention to the increasingly close links which have developed between poetry and the short story, both in their use of myth and folklore, and in the general development of the language of literature. These translations have genuine literary quality, and those of Kahlil Hawi's poem and Zakariyya Tamir's Spring in the Ashes deserve special plaudits'. - Dr Robin Ostle, St John's College Oxford for The Times Higher Education Supplement 10.11.89

'This book has important positive features: Professor Shaheen has avoided writing a conventional critical survey, raised vital literary critical issues, and commented on specific texts'. - The Journal of Semitic Studies Vol.36, No.1, Spring 1991.
