      Beirut, oh Damsel of the World, Beirut. How much ink has been spilled -- and let's only think of the ink, for now -- to tell your story? Our city has become something of a literary genre in itself. So much so, that the name itself has become a narrative device. With so many scripts and codes imbued in a geographic area of -- what? 20? km2? -- it's easy to get lost . The difficulty of producing a national history in the aftermath of a divisive conflict has been made more difficult by the fact that the Lebanese state has refused to engage in a debate about how to commemorate the war and how to produce a space for open national debate about the past.
