Harafish

By Mahfouz, Naguib




Naguib Mahfouz was born in Cairo in 1911 and began writing when he was seventeen. A student of philosophy and an avid reader, his works range from reimaginings of ancient myths to subtle commentaries on contemporary Egyptian politics and culture. Over a career that lasted more than five decades, he wrote 33 novels, 13 short story anthologies, numerous plays, and 30 screenplays. Of his many works, most famous is The Cairo Trilogy, consisting of Palace Walk (1956), Palace of Desire (1957), and Sugar Street (1957), which focuses on a Cairo family through three generations, from 1917 until 1952. In 1988, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the first writer in Arabic to do so. He died in August 2006.

"The Harafish, an epic novel that chronicles the dramatic history of the al-Nagi family - a family that moves, over many generations, from the height of power and glory to the depths of decadence and decay. The Harafish begins with the tale of Ashur al-Nagi, a man who grows from humble beginnings to become a great leader, a legend among his people... Ashur's descendants grow further from his legendary example. The community's upper class... find no threat of another such as Ashur. Not, that is, until the al-Nagi who, like his noble ancestor, finds his power once again from among the Harafish, the common people." [Pub. Info] "The Nobel Prize in Literature 1988 was awarded to Naguib Mahfouz 'who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind."

THE HARAFISH

Mahfouz, Naguib

American University, 2006. Paperback. Very Good. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1988, Naguib Mahfouz is perhaps the best-known living Arab writer. His books have had great success in thi s country, particularly The Cairo Trilogy. Fans of the famed trilogy will b e delighted with The Harafish, an epic novel that chronicles the dramatic h istory of the al-Nagi family -- a family that moves, over many generations, from the height of power and glory to the depths of decadence and decay. T he Harafish begins with the tale of Ashur al-Nagi, a man who grows from hum ble beginnings to become a great leader, a legend among his people. Generat ion after generation, however, Ashur's descendants grow further from his le gendary example. They lose touch with their origins as they amass and then squander large fortunes, marry prostitutes when they marry at all, and deve lop rivalries that end in death. The community's upper class keeps a watchf ul eye on the descendants of al-Nagi for fear of losing their privileges, b ut they find no threat of another such as Ashur. Not, that is, until the al -Nagi who, like his noble ancestor, finds his power once again from among T he Harafish, or the common people. Through the strength of their numbers an d their passion, the glory of the name of al-Nagi is restored. "Of all [Mah fouz's] experiments in recent decades, this is the one which owes least to western inspiration and is probably the most successful. The Harafish, flue ntly translated by Catherine Cobham, makes accessible and engrossing readin g." -- The Washington Post Book World.
