Said's first book was critical study of Conrad, Joseph Conrad and the Fiction of Autobiography ( 1966), that took a phenomenological approach to its subject, but was recognizably within the tradition of Anglo-American 'New Criticism'. Said was one of the first critics in America to respond to the challenge of European structuralist and post-structuralist theory, and his thoughtful, sometimes anxious reflections upon these developments may be traced in his books Beginnings ( 1975) and The World, the Text and the Critic ( 1983).

Edward Said (1 November 1935 – 25 September 2003) was an American literary theorist, cultural critic, and political activist of Palestinian descent. A founding figure in postcolonialism, he wrote dozens of books, lectures, and essays.

A Singular Voice: Collected Writings of Michael Sprinker ed. Aijaz Ahmad, Fred Pfeil and Modhumita Roy (ISBN 1-85984-313-1).

Edward Said's intellectual journeys have taken him around the globe and across many disciplinary borders. Author of Orientalism and The Word, The Text, and The Critic, Said has been widely influential in shaping contemporary debates in the humanities and social sciences, from literature and history to anthropology and area studies. Most famously, perhaps, he has also been for two decades the most visible spokesperson for the Palestinian cause in the United States (and, increasingly, in Britain), a familiar figure on American television and a member of the Palestinian parliament-in-exile from 1977 to 1991. This volume is the first book-length examination of Said's remarkable career, providing a critical survey of his writings and an interim assessment of his achievements in both the cultural and political spheres. This collection includes essays on the Arab-Islamic context of Said's work, his reception among Israeli and American Jews, the institutional contexts of his cultural criticism, and his interventions in Middle Eastern politics. The book concludes with a lengthy interview in which Edward Said comments on his youth in Cairo, on the current state of political and cultural criticism in the United States, and on the increasing integration of his own political and cultural writings in recent years.
