Abstract:This paper examines the dominant themes in contemporary Tunisian Arabic creative writing and analyses the sources from which the writers got their inspiration. It also attempts to shed some light on Tunisian Arabic writers most of them are unknown to English-speaking readers and scholars. The material content of twentieth century Arabic creative writing in Tunisia falls into the following broad thematic divisions: 1) The theme of re-awakening from pre-twentieth century religious and intellectual lethargy; 2) The theme of politics and nationalism; 3) The theme of people's social and economic conditions.
