ABSTRACT
In an interview with "Middle East," magazine published in June 2001, Edward Said said he would not be giving many more interviews. Ten years of struggling with leukemia and effects of treatment, were by then taking their toll on the Jerusalem-born Palestinian teacher, writer and thinker. But the world would not leave Edward Said alone and right until the end he was approached for his thoughts and opinions on the issue of Palestinian nationhood, despite having taken a conscious decision to channel his energies away from politics and towards music. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra Workshop he founded with Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim in 1999, remained a passion to the end of his life, which came in New York on September 25.
