Alif: Journal of Comparative Poetics
[This creative piece marries a unique sensitivity of language to astute critical thinking and contemplation. As it writes about madness it does so from within; that is, it appears, at first glance to be, itself, a mad text. Hence madness is subject and not object in this piece. Such a strategy of writing allows the author to go beyond conventional structure and language to create a text that is a kind of epiphany on madness. It seeks out the origins of the word and contemplates its essence. Further, as the author proceeds to read some selected works by the Egyptian painter Kamal Khalifa (1934-1968), he creates a parallelism between textual and graphic madness and generates a reciprocal process of interpretation between them.]
