DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44453


Drawing on Bourdieu’s field theory, this chapter focuses on the trilogy written between 2008 and 2017 by the Iraqi writer ʿAbdullāh Ṣaḫī. It considers the trajectory and current position of this writer in the literary field and explores, from an ‘internal’ perspective, the representations of the Shia contained in his texts.
