about

This study and edition of nineteenth century Arabic plays, by an Algerian Jew and teachers at the Jewish school in Beirut, reveals the considerable contribution of the Jewish community to the early development of modern Arabic drama. The plays link the Arabian Nights and Jewish Purim-shpilwith the comedies of Moliere and the enlightenment drama of Gotthold Lessing.
