dc.description.abstract This thesis analyzes Palestinian Literature following the Nakba, or the events of 1948 when Palestine was effaced from the map and the State of Israel was proclaimed. Because hundreds of thousands of Arabs living in Palestine at the time were expelled from their home, and were made refugees overnight, old identities that were rooted in places began a painful alteration. Palestinian writers and poets reflect this situation and are instrumental in charting the struggle to redefine this new place-less self. A focus on two Palestinian authors, the poet Mahmoud Darwish and the novelist Ghassan Kanafani, exemplifies how the Palestinian soul began to deal with the meaning of home and the antithesis of home: exile. en_US
