Modern Arabic Short Stories: An Arabic-English Reader features a number of short stories written by well-known writers from different countries. Zakariyya Tamir (Syria), Ibrahim Darghuthy (Tunisia), Yousef Idrees (Egypt), Ahmed Al-Faqih (Libya), Ghasan Kanafani (Palestine), Zaid M. Damaj (Yemen), Layla Al-Uthman (Kuwait), Abdulhamid Al-Gharbawi (Morocco), Hasan Dabal (Saudi Arabia), and Jamal Al-Khayyat (Bahrain) are well-known in the Arab World as well as in the West. Some of their works have been translated into many languages. The potential readership for this bilingual volume is varied. However, the primary target readers are students of Arabic-English translation. As each story used in this volume is accompanied by an English translation, this makes the volume accessible to all those interested in contemporary Arabic literature, but who are not able to read the stories in the original. Given adequate consideration to those groups, the translator has tried to do his best to strike a balance between 'acceptability', i.e. how to live up to the readers' expectations, and 'accuracy', i.e. how to reflect the author's message accurately without addition, omission, etc. Ali Almanna received a PhD in Translation Studies from Durham University, UK, and an MA in Linguistics and Translation from Westminster University, UK. He is Associate Professor of Linguistics and Translation and a specialist in linguistics and translation studies, particularly the theoretical annotation of translation. His recent publications include The Nuts and Bolts of Arabic-English translation: An Introduction to Applied Contrastive Linguistics, The Arabic-English Translator as Photographer: A Linguistic Account, The Routledge Course in Translation Annotation, and Semantics for Translation Students
