Palestinian Writers

4 April 2015
Examines the historical and cultural background, lives, careers, personal and political themes of ten 20th Century poets, novelists and non-fiction writers.

This is an examination of Palestinian writers, their principal works and how they and their writings have been influenced by the occupation of Palestinian lands. Three great events: the 1948 War, the Six Day War of 1967, and the popular uprising known as the Intifada are the most significant events of the occupation period. The effect and the importance of these events for Palestinian writers largely depends on the general group to which they belong: writers who live within the boundaries of Palestine/Israel; writers who became part of the Palestinian Diaspora; and writers who remained in the new nation, but were either expelled by the government or chose voluntary exile. Palestinian writers, both inside and outside the borders of Israel, have been a powerful voice in the pursuit of justice for the people of Palestine.
