Abstract [en]

This article links ecocriticism and theory in the West and the East to each other. Hubert Zapf's (2002) triadic model is applied to the novel Nazif al-hajar by the Libyan author Ibrahim al-Kawni/al-Kony (1990). Through the representation of three central characters and three animal species affiliated with the desert appearing in the novel we inquire about the problematic of the extincion of central species of the fauna in the bioregion in which the novel is set, the southwestern Libyan desert, and search for 'alternative' life-styles suitable for cosmopolitan life in the global village of the present.
