From the Editors
The New York Times says Jadaliyya "Brings New Life to Arab Studies." Read about it by clicking here.
Brecht wrote once "In the future, they will not say the times were dark. They will ask: Why were their poets silent?" Some poets were silent this spring, but many others weren't.
It is summer now and, as William Carlos Williams put it: "In summer, the song sings itself."
This week's culture section features an essay on the counterrevolutionary response of a previously revolutionary poet, a translation and detailed introduction of a short story by Maroun Abboud (1886-1962) and a moving travelogue from Granada.
The Arab Spring and Adunis's Autumn by Sinan Antoon
Maroun Abboud's "Everlasting Everlasting" by Gaelle Raphael
Blind in Granada by Taline Voskeritchian

"The United States has been a close ally of one of the most repressive Islamic states in the world—Saudi Arabia—and has had little difficulties with Turkey’s Islamic government. The “fear of Islamists” component of this narrative is clearly a red herring."click | email | tweet
