ABSTRACT
Chapter 9 of the book "The Postcolonial Crescent: Islam's Impact on Contemporary Literature" is presented. It focuses on the impact of colonialism on the socio-political and cultural life in Lebanon during the postcolonial period. Colonialism had ended in Lebanon during the termination of the French Mandate around 1943. Modern Lebanon is the offspring of the common interests of the French colonials and influential Maronite comprador. The predominance of the sectarian system allowed for the introduction of a sectarian ideology in Lebanon. The author illustrates this using the novel "Sitt Marie Rose," by Etel Adnan.
