  • Dr. Ali Hadi Hassan Hussein University of Kirkuk / College of Education for Humanities


The novel Jabal Uz-Zomorod by the Egyptian writer Mansoura Izz Al-Din represents a tremendous shift in the process of feminist writing, where she emerged with her complex narrative character of the philosophical style and Sufi vision which are manifested in a language full of symbols and signs and immersed in her sensual feminine Islamic sensation. The novel Jabal Uz-Zomarrad (Emerald Mountain) does not make us only of the heritage in an attempt to revive the lost tales of The Arabian Nights, but it tries to take out its main characters such as (Hadir and Bustan Deria and others) from their narrow environment, small memories, and limited labyrinth to a large area of the world of Islamic thought and Semitic riddles in philosophical, existential, and Sufi contexts. She introspects
philosophical motifs such as soaring with imagination, useless questions, infinite wanders, exodus, spells, abandonment, and metaphysical worlds beyond the physics of utopian and dystopian places and time to make her profound experience an unparalleled presence in contemporary Arab feminist writings. The paper will attempt to explore this experience in the light of the feminist approach of literary criticism.
