Abstract

IRAQ’S MODERN ARABIC LITERATURE IN ENGLISH TRANSLATION 1950-2003 1 SALIH J. ALTOMA Iraqi literature has attracted in recent years a growing number of general readers, not only because Iraq has been at the center of world events. The literature itself reveals a fairly impressive range of styles and themes, with notable modernist trends, particularly in poetry. It is with this interest in mind, and the need for a guide to Iraq’s literature that this bibliographical survey was undertaken. The bibliography covers Iraq’s modern Arabic liter- ature as published in English translation during the last fifty years — 1950- 2003. It includes also relevant studies and interviews, but no attempt was made to cover book reviews. Iraqi literature written in other languages such as Kurdish, Turkmen or Hebrew, is not included in this survey. Jewish Iraqi writers who were noted for their literary efforts during the pre-1950 period are cited only if their translated works were originally written in Arabic and published before their departure from Iraq (e.g. YaÆq‚b Balb‚l and Anwar Shaæul). It should be pointed out that their writings are recognized, often in positive terms, as an integral part of Iraq’s Arabic literature. The 1988 anthology of
