Burden of Colonialism and Alienation in Modern Kurdish Novel
Burden of Colonialism and Alienation in Modern Kurdish Novel

Chiad ABDULKARIM [1]


This article focuses on the influence of the colonialism and how such forces are reflected in the modern Kurdish novel. It becomes apparent that such forces are yet at a great work in the regions inhabited by the Kurds in the region of Middle East. Furthermore, this study considers how sophisticated means are being used physically, culturally, and economically as an ongoing process where people have been deprived of stability, prosperity and peace. In concluding remarks, it becomes evident that the impact of colonialism, has influenced people on four levels: First, the internal displacement, mostly reflected in Gharbi Mustafa’s first two novels. Secondly, The Inner psychological conflict, this experience is reflected in Ismet Badal’s novel Dawiya Şervanekî. Thirdly, man’s quest for traditions which is mostly reflected in Yashar Kemal’s novel The Pomegranate Tree. These factors have triggered a response to the dominant narrative in the form of novels.
