Netton, Ian Richard

Text and Trauma: An East-West Primer
Richmond, UK: Curzon Press [1996]; ISBN: 070070325X/0700703268

Netton has set for himself the task to study the "different languages" that the east and west speak. In doing this he has chosen to look at the "religious, cultural, historical and literary archaeology" of Naguib Mahfouz's Children of Gebelawi, Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses and Nikos Kazantzakis' Last Temptation. His experience as a scholar of Arabic and Islam serves Netton well when he chooses to examine the relationship of Satanic Verses' heresy to the Islamic heretic tradition.
