Marmaduke Pickthall Reinstated: What Canon?
Title: Marmaduke Pickthall Reinstated: What Canon?
Authors: Ebtisam A. Sadiq, Naela H. Danish, and Afra S. Al-Shiban
Marmaduke Pickthall was a prolific British novelist, essayist, journalist, and short story writer who was positively received by his contemporaries for his fictional oeuvre, but is hardly known in the current literary world. Despite his obvious talents, Pickthall was unfortunately ignored when the English literary canon was formed in the mid-twentieth century. Today, he is only remembered for his conversion to Islam, his Turkish sympathies, and his translation of the Holy Qur’an to English in 1930.
