The Barber of Damascus

The conclusion invites a consideration of literary continuities between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It suggests that the eighteenth-century scribal chronicle of the nouveau literates may have anticipated the genres of the newspaper and journal article, which are emblematic of al-Nahḍa and Arab modernity. It describes how the eighteenth-century chroniclers forged a culture of pre-print journalism that heralded the new age of the public intellectual/journalist of the Arab Renaissance.
