|Title||The Implications of the Dialectics of Place andSelf and its Manifestations in the Structure ofthe Novels of Palestinian Prisoners|
|Title in Arabic||دلالات جدلية المكان والذات وتجلياتها في بنية روايات الأسرى الفلسطينيين|
This study aims to reveal the implications of the dialectics of place and self and its manifestations in the narrative structure of the Palestinian prisoners' novels, given that this literature centres in the field of self-affirmation between to be or not to be, because it was written in an aggressive environment of repression, deterrence and persecution. The study dealt with eleven novels written by Palestinian prisoners inside the Zionist prisons. These novels are 'Prisoner's Moon and Four Walls' by prisoner Muath Alhanafi, the two novels 'When Orange Blooms' and 'Behind the Lines' by prisoner Ammar Alzaben, the novel 'Saber's Tale' by prisoner Mahmoud Issa, the novel 'Lamps that do not Go Out' by prisoner Mohammed Ighbariyah, the two novels 'The Guillotine and Zionist Shabak's Spies' and 'Palestine the Lover and the Beloved' by prisoner Abdullah Barghouti, the novel 'The Exile' by prisoner Rafat Hamdouna, the novel ' Embers of Grapes' by prisoner Jamal Alhour, and the two novels 'Pain Without Decision' and the 'Capsule' by prisoner Kameel Abu Hneesh. The researcher used the descriptive analytical approach, as it is suitable for such studies. The study concluded that the dialectics of place and self is largely present in the prisoners’ novels, and the manifestations of the place appeared in all novels, but in varying degrees. The artistic dimensions of the place affected the level of self-awareness either positively or negatively, and the effect of the place on the narrative structure appeared clearly. The study recommends celebrating the literature of the prisoners, and directing researchers to study this precious treasure, which represents a historical document witnessing the events of our times, and what Palestine has gone through. The study also recommends holding conferences, symposia and day seminars dealing with this hidden treasure.
