Men in the Sun (Teaching Guide)

This website offers an overview and teaching suggestions for Ghassan Kanafani's novella Men in the Sun. This text allows students to explore the impact of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Palestinians in the early decades of the conflict, the harsh situations facing refugees looking for work in the Gulf, and Kanafani's call to action in response. Students can also examine the use of symbol and flashback as literary devices.
