Abstract
This paper explores the literary representations of fluidity in the literatures of the Mediterranean, focusing on the novels by Lebanese and Palestinian women writers. The representations of fluidity will be discussed through the analysis of the novels by Alawiyya Subuh and Iman Humaydan Younes of Lebanon, and Adania Shibli of Palestine. We will discuss how the form and the imagery, as well as the thematic focus of these works all contribute to establishing and expressing the fluid boundaries between gender, national, ethnic and religious differences, as well as within these categories. The blurring of the lines between storytelling and writing, between the past and the present, between the author and the characters will be discussed as further examples of the fluidity present in these works. The aesthetics of the storytelling technique, sensory perception technique as well as the lyrical commentary technique will also be touched upon as means of enhancing the perception of these works in terms of fluidity.
