About The Book

The book classifies the forms of self-narratives within the general literary discourse, which includes diaries, letters, confessions, journals, self-imagination, and self-narration. The book is characterised by a smooth presentation, clear concepts, accurate analysis, a modern and comprehensive review, and reading of ancient and modern Arabic narrative works. The book presents the complex relationship between writing, existence, text, and what they embody in the real self-representation and its transfer to the book.
