Read full description of the books:



O intelectual palestino Edward W. Said é conhecido por livros como Orientalismo e Cultura e imperialismo, em que analisa com originalidade e brilhantismo questões geopolíticas e culturais da atualidade. Nesses ensaios, Said reflete sobre a maneira como o imaginário ocidental vê (e age sobre) o Oriente.


Em Fora do lugar, escrito durante a tentativa do autor de vencer o câncer - que o levaria à morte em 2003 -, o autor muda o foco de atenção para sua própria trajetória pessoal, que se confunde em grande parte com a do povo palestino.


Nascido em 1935 em Jerusalém - de onde partiu com a família quando da criação do Estado de Israel -, Said viveu no Egito, no Líbano e nos Estados Unidos, sentindo-se sempre "fora do lugar".


À condição apátrida comum a todos os palestinos acrescentou-se, em seu caso, uma condição familiar peculiar. Seu pai, que lutou na Primeira Guerra no exército dos Estados Unidos, era cidadão norte-americano nascido em Jerusalém. Por conta disso, Said sempre estudou em escolas inglesas e norte-americanas, tendo sido alfabetizado em árabe e em inglês.


Nesse relato autobiográfico, Edward W. Said narra o doloroso processo de construção de sua identidade, tendo como pano de fundo os eventos traumáticos que convulsionaram o Oriente Médio na segunda metade do século XX: a queda da Palestina, a ditadura Nasser, os conflitos árabe-israelenses, a Guerra Civil do Líbano.


Em Fora do lugar, a memória se confunde com a história do povo palestino: biografia pessoal e história coletiva se entrelaçam num relato de valor documental, ensaístico e literário.

Ebook Fora do Lugar read Online! (Arabic Profile إدوارد سعيد)
Edward Wadie Said (Arabic: إدوارد وديع سعيد‎ [wædiːʕ sæʕiːd], Idwārd Wadīʿ Saʿīd; 1 November 1935 – 25 September 2003) was a professor of literature at Columbia University, a public intellectual, and a founder of the academic field of postcolonial studies. A Palestinian American born in Mandatory Palestine, he was a citizen of the United States by way of his father, a U.S. Army veteran.

Educated in the Western canon, at British and American schools, Said applied his education and bi-cultural perspective to illuminating the gaps of cultural and political understanding between the Western world and the Eastern world, especially about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Middle East; his principal influences were Antonio Gramsci, Frantz Fanon, Aimé Césaire, Michel Foucault, and Theodor Adorno.

As a cultural critic, Said is known for the book Orientalism (1978), a critique of the cultural representations that are the bases of Orientalism—how the Western world perceives the Orient. Said’s model of textual analysis transformed the academic discourse of researchers in literary theory, literary criticism, and Middle-Eastern studies—how academics examine, describe, and define the cultures being studied. As a foundational text, Orientalism was controversial among the scholars of Oriental Studies, philosophy, and literature.

As a public intellectual, Said was a controversial member of the Palestinian National Council, because he publicly criticized Israel and the Arab countries, especially the political and cultural policies of Muslim régimes who acted against the national interests of their peoples. Said advocated the establishment of a Palestinian state to ensure equal political and human rights for the Palestinians in Israel, including the right of return to the homeland. He defined his oppositional relation with the status quo as the remit of the public intellectual who has “to sift, to judge, to criticize, to choose, so that choice and agency return to the individual” man and woman.

In 1999, with his friend Daniel Barenboim, Said co-founded the West–Eastern Divan Orchestra, based in Seville, which comprises young Israeli, Palestinian, and Arab musicians. Besides being an academic, Said also was an accomplished pianist, and, with Barenboim, co-authored the book Parallels and Paradoxes: Explorations in Music and Society (2002), a compilation of their conversations about music. Edward Said died of leukemia on 25 September 2003.
