YASSIN, Nour Yasser
“Frankenstein in Baghdad” is one of the most significant Iraqi novels. This article deals with it in several levels; the realistic and efficacious characters, e.g. “Hadi al-Atak”, the realistic but un-efficacious characters, e.g. “abu Anmar”, the imaginary and efficacious characters, e.g. “al-Shasma”, and finally, the imaginary but un-efficacious characters, e.g. “Saint Marcoris.” I argue here that the social unrests and orientational disorders in Real Iraq are well presented and reflected in these four different narrative modes.
