The Making of a Modern Othello?

In 2001, the Damascus-based Arab Literary Academy declared Tayeb Salih’s Season of Migration to the North “the most important Arab novel of the twentieth century.” “Honestly, I kept waiting for Salih to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, right up until 2009, when his death at 80 eliminated him from contention,” Miller says. Salih’s main character, Mustafa Sa’eed, combines elements of Shakespeare’s Othello and Conrad’s Kurtz, and his story is equally riveting, if not equally tragic. If you have yet to investigate the postcolonial literature of the Arab world, then this novel is a wonderful place to start. Class Limit: 20


Instructor Michelle Miller is a retired high school English teacher whose heart remains in the classroom, or at least in the realm of literature. While she gardens, plays bridge, and writes articles for the Mussel Ridge Historical Society newsletter, what fires her imagination is engaging with the ideas that writers share with their audiences and exploring those ideas in discussion with other curious readers.
