    1. لما بنتكلم عن إدوارد سعيد , إحنا مش بنتكلم عن مجرد مفكر ولا منظر عظيم , ولا أستاذ للأدب المقارن يُشار له بالبنان , لأ , إحنا لما بنتكلم عنه : بنتكلم عن إنسان عظيم صاحب تجربة فريدة تستحق التسجيل , بنتكلم عن فلسطيني ترعرع في شوارع القاهرة والإسكندرية وتنقل بين بلدان إنجلترا و أمريك [...]


    2. I just can't recommend this highly enough. I hate to sound like a stereotypical liberal-hippie-multi-culti-Said-lover, but I couldn't put this book down. I like the interview format much more than the essay--you feel like you're engaged in a relaxed conversation with him, and his scholarly depth and breadth are astonishing. The guy knows how to communicate, and I refer back to this book a lot in critiquing all sorts of stuff.


    3. This collection came out after Edward Said's untimely death and contains all his major interviews since 1976, when he was still writing his magnum opus 'Orientalism' till before his death in the early 2000s. The interviews collected here are the ones which deal with his critical works and his political activism, so these are not light biography-type exchanges. Some of them are pretty dense and challenge you a lot if you do not have a basic acquaintance with literary theory and the developments i [...]



    4. من أثقل (معلوماتيًا ومعرفة) ماكتب إدواردومن أجمل مت قرأت لهعندما تقرأ هذا الكتاب كن بالقرب من مكتبة عامةستحتاج الكثير لتفهمه.من أفضل الفصول التي راقت لي الفصل الذي يتناول فيه المؤلف قضية الأزمة التي تحدث بين المثقف والسلطة في فصل (قول الحقيقة للسلطة) وكذلك فصل (استبعاد الأمم) [...]


    5. نفس عميق ،، أنهيت الكتاب كتاب مرهق لازم تقرأه وانت قاعد علي جوجل عشان تراجع أسماء الكتاب اللي الكاتب ذكرهم أو تقرأ النظريات اللي أشار إليهاالنجمة الخامسة اللي ناقصة في التقييم مش لنقص أو عيب لكن تقديرا للمواضيع اللي أنا مافهمتهاش أو لم تثر اهتمامي :)


    6. I particularly enjoyed the second part of this collection, probably because it deals more with his involvement in the Palestinian struggle, and critic of it - an easier topic to digest than lit theory (Will try to reread that part sometime later). Interestingly the interview I find most beautiful is the final one, with Ari Shavit from an Israeli daily.


    7. stunning book. got me thinking about so many things beyond politics, power and culture. you dont have to believe evertthing that he says (though he does say it pretty damn eloquently) but the places he takes your mind is pretty cool. the book is about a series of interviews he has and his responses on some very interesting questions. it took me a while to get into the language of this and i found it a bit hard to start with but as it is slightly repetitive (not ina boring way at all) by the end [...]


    8. Interview collections always feel so incomplete. No real thesis comes out of them, and the reader just gets a very fragmentary notion of a writer's life and works. I feel like I should have read a bunch more Said before settling on these interviews, but that said, they were still quite enjoyable, even if they often repeated the same points. What comes out, again and again, is not only how original and provocative Said's arguments remain (something I expected before starting), but also what a goo [...]


    9. A collection of interviews spanning thirty years on everything from music and literary theory to the Gulf War and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Also a proof that Said was a better talker than writer.


    10. والهويَّةُ؟ قُلْتُفقال: دفاعٌ عن الذاتإنَّ الهوية بنتُ الولادة لكنهافي النهاية إبداعُ صاحبها, لاوراثة ماضٍ. أنا المتعدِّدَ فيداخلي خارجي المتجدِّدُ. لكننيأنتمي لسؤال الضحية. لو لم أكنمن هناك لدرَّبْتُ قلبي على أنيُرَبي هناك غزال الكِنَايةِدرويش في رثاء ادوارد سعيد



    11. ادورد سعيد يشبه المركبات الكيمائية مركبة ومعقدة ومكثفة لكن اللهم ان ادورد سعيد جميل ملاحظة : ان لم تكن من اولئك الذين اكلت الكتب من يومهم اكثر من النوم ستحتاج لصديقنا جوووجل لفهم كل شيء بدقة


    12. كتاب مهم جدا ولكن المعلومات جدا ثقيلة و لازم ارجع اقراة مره ثانيه بعد ما اقرا عن الاشخاص اللي تكلم عنهم الكاتب .


    13. قرأت مقدمة الكاتبة وفيها كلام جزل وجميل. يفترض أن أنهي الكتاب قبل نهاية رمضان، الكتاب قد يتنتهي، أما الأسئلة فلا.
