Abstract

This study compares and stylistically analyzes the theme of exile in Jabra’s (1974) “In the Deserts of Exile” and Wright’s (1951) “I Choose Exile”. It aims to show the different representations of exile in a Palestinian and an American work through discussing four sub-themes present in both works. Among these are the motives of exile and the meaning of different places and colors that are perceived differently in accordance with each writer's setting; all these factors make exile involuntary for Jabra but voluntary for Wright. The study, also, employs Edward Said’s contrapuntal, postcolonial, and space and place theories.
