Sample text

Eventually, he chooses the first woman, who becomes the price of his sacrifice. Ibrahim al-Nasser does the same in his novel A Slit in the Night’s Attire. The family he chooses for this story also represents the middle class, business folk who cling tightly to customs and traditions. The family first undergoes social and economic change in the village, then moves to the city, with all its temptations, delights, freedom and problems.

They often emphasised their objectives on the covers of their novels, in dedications and introductions. The 1950s and the 1960s witnessed some important new changes in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which encouraged the emergence of the novel as an art form, distinct from the didactic novel of the previous period.

The poetry also reflects a passion for nature; it emulates al-Shabbi in choosing forests as a topic; it is about grievances which are quickly pacified by patience, hope, regret and repentance. Although al-Zamakhshari seems talented enough to have avoided pomposity in his poetry, his choice of subject matter did not serve to distinguish him from the other poets of his time.
