Reading in the Phenomenon of Suicide in the Arab Heritage (in Arabic)

Auther : Khalil M. AI-Sheikh

This essay tries to cast light on a significant phenomenon of literary sociology, namely that of Suicide as expressed in Arabic literary heritage.

The problem of Suicide is not that of an individual who commits the deed but it has complex ramification which relates to the philosophical framework of the society and to the psychological formation of the individual committing suicide.

Needless to say, this essay does not claim to be comprehensive, but it rather attempts to investigate some characteristic examples.

The essay approaches this phenomenon on two levels: one is an investigation of the intimate dialectical relation between love and death-suicide, through analysis of some stories of lovers who committed suicide, thus showing that suicide is an escape from a crisis suffered by the lovers.

The other level is a study of the characters of some individuals who committed suicide, taking into consideration the peculiar intellectual, economic and moral crises which led to suicide.
