Saul Bellow: from Ghetto to Stockholm (in Arabic)

Auther : Shaker Mahmoud Mustafa

Through the analysis of three of Bellow’s novels, this research attempts to point out the novelist’s sympathetic attitude towards some Zionist premises and practices. The novels are: the Victim (1947), Herzog (1964), and Mr Sammler’s Planet (1970). In these novels, bellow’s sympathy is shown in a very subtle and implicit manner: that is he is not overtly a pro-Zionist writer. Rather, he handles these premises and practices in the creative texture of his work, as if they were only aspects of being committed to Judaism: as a religion, a race and a heritage.

The research also attempts to point out and analyze the significance of the novelist’s movement from a very timid acceptance of Zionist premises finally embraces them in his post June 1967 novel, Mr. Sammler’s Planet.

It is the contention of the researcher that this movement towards embracing Zionist ideology may be one of the reasons behind the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Literature to Saul Bellow in 1976.
