Secularism, Sectarianism, and Spirituality in Sinan Antoon’s The Corpse Washer
English & Comparative Literature Department
The presence of religion in literature is not a new phenomenon. Religion is a part of culture; its popular manifestations and diverse interpretations and beliefs have often been exposed in literary works from Milton to Dostoevsky, from Dante to Flaubert. Images of religion are often interwoven in literary works and different aspects and manifestations of religion may be emphasized -doctrines, ethics or rituals. If we examine the presence of Islam in Arabic literary works, we find different types of Islam presented, and this is not surprising since Islam has many faces in the life of Muslim societies, from its institutional formulation to popular Islam as lived by the people.
