The Wedding Feast

The narrative begins with a very sensual description of the preparation of an Arabic meal. Descriptions of concrete political conditions in Palestine flow into this monologue, humiliation, violence, expulsion from home and difficulties of everyday life are described. The narrative returns time and again to the preparation of meals and the wedding preparations, pointing to the wedding as a parable for reconciliation and connection.

  • Poetic narrative style with linguistic clarity
  • Connection between literary claim and political relevance
  • The author lets the reader participate in the sensuality of preparing the feast
