Our plague is forgetfulnessTo think that an attempt was made on Naguib Mahfouz s life for writing this book is beyond ridiculous It shows that those who want to shut up books aren t really bothered with actual offensive material but react to perceptions of insult to their ideology in a world in which they are becoming increasingly outdated and irrelevant hence all this mindless sensitivenessAs to the novel itself I had a hard time with its two dimensional characterisations and insufficient conflict We have a brutal world headed by Gebelaawi the timeless arch ancestor of the human settlement who fathered and brought into world various tribes and who lives in seclusion in the grand house shielded by everyone and everything ruling his estate the world in absentia God in other words or the Abrahamic idea of it The story revolves around the struggle between his succeeding generations modeled on various Biblio uranic figures such as Abel and Cain Moses Jesus Muhammad who were chosen to be sent to their tribes when the human condition became intolerably dark Mahfouz leaves us in ambiguity as to whether the prophets were actually chosen by Gebelaawi or whether they came to believe in their station by some extraordinary natural agency that set them apart from the sheepleThe same story repeats itself like a broken record Every reform movement descends into the chaos as soon as the leader of the tribe turns his back on the temporary abode that is the world It is as though Mahfouz is saying that nothing ever changes things do not get better for ever evil overpowers good at the first opportunity One prophet comes fixes things gives people a simulacrum of justice and happiness only for them to go back to fighting killing pillaging and the oppression and injustice that comes with the abuse of power Might the implied failure of various leaders have caused offence to the deranged extremists living in a perfect golden age of their imagination Who knows ehI mentioned its lack of subtlety above but I m tempted to see the narrative voice as imitating the uranic storytelling told in dry exhortative repetitive fear inducing tones for maximum effect The good and evil are portrayed in absolute terms even though the prophets are brought down from their infallible station in myth to the level of humanity with their personal flaws We do have room to see it as ironical This is a promising idea for a story superimposed on the historico mythical children of Abraham only if Mahfouz had handled it with tact But there s no mistaking what he s getting at I myself have seen this wretched state of affairs in our own day a faithful reflection of what people tell us about the past As for the bards they tell only of the heroic times avoiding anything that could offend the powerful singing praisesand celebrating a justice we never enjoy a mercy we never find a nobility we never meet with a restraint we never see and a fairness we never hear of February 16

read أولاد حارتنا Naguib Mahfouz ☆ 3 free download summary Ì eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Naguib Mahfouz ?زلته ويوزع تركته ويخلصهم من بطش الفتوات فيسود الخير على الجميع، ويظهر في كل جيل هذا المخلص والذي يتعلق به الناس وينتفضو معه ضد الفتوات، ولكن الجشع والجهل يرجعهم في اخر المطاف الى ما كانت عليه الاوضاع ويبقى الفقر والمعاناة مصيرهم الذي لا مفر منهيصف محفوظ في هذه الرواية الرائعة. I have read uite a few novels by Naguib Mahfouz and found this one weaker than what I have read before The premise is a good one to cover the spiritual history of mankind in terms of our efforts to improve our existence and societyUsing the framework of key historical moments he offers tales concerning the inhabitants dwelling in an Egyptian alley All these people have a common ancestor and indeed exist to greater or lesser degrees by the whim of their patriarch In each period covered throughout the novel some sort of exceptional always male person arises from the masses of people and attempts to resolve the conflicts and sufferings of his fellowsOne of these is similar to Adam from Genesis Another pair of brothers are reminiscent of Cain and Abel one is Christ like Each of them has a special connection with Gabalawi the ancestor who dwells in a big manor house and owns all the area around and including the alley These potential heroes or saviors feel they are fulfilling the wishes of the old man who seems to live forever They often better conditions but eventually die after which the population of the alley regresses to their old ways Greed oppression envy competitiveness and other ills are never conueredThe means applied by each of these reformers vary from non violence to the use of force from enlightenment to magic I was kept reading because Mafouz seemed to be following a progression of spiritual evolution and because each section has intriguing plots counter plots and relationshipsIn the end however progress has not been made Man is incorrigible and carries on telling the old tales while hoping that magically all will come right if only one is patient I was left confused Is Mahfouz saying that hope is the key Or is he mocking our irresponsible habit of waiting for some god or hero to solve our problems for us
