Abstract:

"The Beggar is a complex tale of alienation and despair. In the aftermath of Nasser's revolution, a man sacrifices his work and family to a series of illicit love affairs that intensify his feelings of estrangement. A passionate outcry against irrelevance, and a masterful work of fiction." "Released from jail in postrevolutionary times, the hero of The Thief and the Dogs blames an unjust society for his ill fortune, eventually bringing himself to destruction in a cruel world that denies his redemption." "Autumn Quail is a tale of moral responsibility, isolation, and political downfall about a corrupt bureaucrat who is one of the early victims of the purge following the 1952 revolution. Mahfouz presents a remarkable portrait of the clash between past and present, a portrait that is ultimately an optimistic one in which the two will peacefully coexist."--Jacket.
