In Memoriam: Edward Said 1935-2003

Edward Said died yesterday, September 25, 2003
The piece linked above is an autobiographical essay written by Said in 1998.
A great writer, fighter and human being passed away. It is the sort of loss that hurts even more in these circumstances of an attack unprecedented in its ferocity and shamelessness against the Palestinian people, and the tragedy of the Middle East.
Below, as a tiny web tribute are links to material about him and by him:
The Edward Said archive
Dreams and Delusions: his last published article.
Archaeology of the roadmap: Said's assessment of the "roadmap".
The only alternative: a statement of vision.
A window on the world: "...humanism is the only, and I would go as far as to say the final resistance we have against the inhuman practices and injustices that disfigure human history."
Audio and Video of Said's lecture on the tragedy of Palestine.
