Resumen:   Is Arabic literature (still) embargoed? In view of the considerable efforts of scholars and translators examined here, this statement would seem rather extreme. Obstacles to the translation, publication, and distribution of Arabic literature remain considerable (and not only due to difficulties in the target cultures). But over the twenty-five years that have passed since Edward Said made his famous indictment, there has been slow and steady progress. Which of these two sides of progress is more pronounced would depend on one’s focus (what Arabic literature and in what language we have in mind). For while progress can certainly be observed, it has manifested itself differently in the various contexts covered in this collection. Future studies will certainly broaden the scope we have covered here, hopefully revealing further progress in different areas, and in both the source and target cultures. [Source: Editor]
