12100 ABU LUGHOD, LILA Veiled Sentiments: Honor and Poetry in a Bedouin Society . &&&&& 317 p., ills.,map, index, bibl iogr 1988 University of California Press SOFTCOVER: (orig. paperb. VERY GOOD) Lila Abu-Lughod lived with a community of Bedouins in the Western Desert of Egypt for nearly two years, studying gender relations and the oral lyric poetry through which women and young men express personal feelings. The poems are haunting, the evocation of emotional life vivid. But her analysis also reveals how deeply implicated poetry and sentiment are in the play of power and the maintenance of a system of social hierarchy. What begins as a puzzle about a single poetic genre becomes a reflection on the politics of sentiment and the relationship between ideology and human experience."
