Chapter Summary

This is the preface of the book, which has a purposeful bent of its own expressed through a complementarity that brings individual texts together to form a coherent body of thought which we may refer to as "rhetorical turn" in Arabic studies. In the book, literature stands at a number of thresholds where there is always suspense, hesitation and possible revival. Building on literary traditions, the essays endeavor to salvage meaning from either the wreckage or treasury of the past. The chapter presents an overview of how the book is organised.
