Abstract:   (10181 Views)
While comparative literature knowledge expanded beyond the European borders toward the Arabian lands, it found many for and against among the Arab critics. Some appreciated comparative literature in order to enrich the  national literature and culture (including conversation, friendship, recognizing and understanding others), and some were doubtful about it; they believed that it is a European-based approach in comparative literature as well as the western naturalism aiming to westernize Islamic-Arabian thoughts, and is the threshold of novice (cultural) colonialism. Drawing on a descriptive-analytic approach, this theoretical research tries to do a deep and accurate analysis of the second critical group. The main findings comment on the group of critics on the damages of comparative literature in identity and culture, who believe that comparative literature suffers from Europeanism, and cultural racism.
