Naguib Mahfouz is the Arab world's best-known writer and the single most important chronicler and analyst of twentieth-century Egypt. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1988, and since then his work has been increasingly studied in North American university classrooms. This first volume in the MLA series Approaches to Teaching World Literature to focus on an Arab author or Arabic literature provides an introduction to Mahfouz.

In part 1, "Materials," the editors discuss Mahfouz's background, influence, and critical reception. In part 2, "Approaches," the volume's contributors offer information, resources, and insights for teaching his work. Topics covered include the Arabian Nights tradition in Mahfouz's work, the challenge of teaching Mahfouz in English translation, the Nasserite intellectual in The Beggar, the image of Alexandria in Miramar, the bitterness of British occupation in Midaq Alley, and the quest of Sufism in "Zaabalawi."

About the Author:

Waïl S. Hassan is associate professor of comparative literature at the University of Illinois, Urbana. He is the author of Tayeb Salih: Ideology and the Craft of Fiction and Immigrant Narratives: Orientalism and Cultural Translation in Arab American and Arab British Literature and the translator of Abdelfattah Kilito's Thou Shalt Not Speak My Language.

Review:

"This volume's usefulness for teachers and students of Mahfouz as well as for undergraduate and graduate courses on the Arabic novel and surveys of Arabic or world literature is beyond question."


--Adnan Haydar, University of Arkansas
