The Palestinian Catastrophe ) An-Nakba( in the Novel, zamn alḳayūl albayḍāʾ [The Time of the White Horses] by ʾIbrāhīm Naṣrallah: Imagination and Historical Awareness

Auther : Rami Abu Shehab

 

This study aims to demonstrate the concept of historical narration in the novel, zamn alkayul albayda [The Time of the White Horses] by Ibrahim Nasrallah. The study transcends the conventional perspective towards Nasrallah’s novel that only focuses on verifying events and, instead, promotes a collective spirit buried within an imagined text and that seeks to achieve historical awareness of the event. This results in ensuring the continuity and contemplation of a violent event, the Palestinian Catastrophe, that is engraved in the Palestinian consciousness.
The study examines the dialectical relationship between the historical event and the imaginary narrative using specific frameworks. These frameworks include Hegel’s concept of the spirit of history, as well as Gyorgy Lukacs’ and Paul Ricoeur’s theories, particularly those about historical narrative.
Keywords: Nakba - Memory - Novel - Palestine - Ibrahim Nasrallah
