Centrifugal/Centripetal Movements: Placelessness and the Subversive Tactics of Mobility in Ernest Hemingway and Jabra Ibrahim Jabra
Compares perspectives on exile in Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, The Sun Also Rises, and A Farewell to Arms to Palestinian author J. I. Jabra’s The Ship (1970), In Search of Walid Masound (1978), and Hunters in a Narrow Street (1960), focusing on issues of place and motion. Qabaha explains that while Hemingway celebrates the mobility and freedom of the modern American exile, Jabra associates exile with displacement and rejection. Explores how Hemingway’s characters revel in their expatriation as opposed to Jabra’s who, forced into exile, long to be reunited with their Palestinian historical-cultural roots.
