Today in class we talked about a book called Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih. My original review of this book is here. I do understand it better after today, and while I don't know that I would be able to use much of it in classs, it is definitely interesting. It is considered THE Arabic Novel and is a good example of the interaction and misconceptions between East and West in both directions. It's been a while since I've read Othello, but the other teachers in class were saying that it has a lot of things in common with that particular play.
I am glad I don't have to get up early tomorrow morning.
