Item description for Naguib Mahfouz: A Western and Eastern Cage of Female Entrapment by Pamela Allegretto-Diiulio...

Generally regarded as modern Egypt's leading literary figure, Naguib Mahfouz was the first Arabic-language author awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. Critics hail Mahfouz for his ability to capture the essence of Cairene culture and life. This book illuminates how Naguib Mahfouz has successfully used the elements of daily life to capture the reality of his generation amidst the political upheaval caused in part by the British occupation of Egypt. This study also goes beyond opening up the Egyptian world to the reader; it is a careful analysis of the major novels of Mahfouz's career from an ambiguous feminist perspective. The author selects the term ambiguous deliberately to signify the disparity between a Western and Islamic lens. By employing this approach, the author successfully shows how the characters are not only entrapped in cages of subservience, but also cleverly reveals how the reader of Mahfouz's work is often entrapped in cages of misunderstanding. As the first scholarly study on Mahfouz's work through a highly original interdisciplinary Western and Eastern feminist lens, this book is a critical addition for collections in Literature, Middle Eastern Studies, and Women's Studies.

Reviews - What do customers think about Naguib Mahfouz: A Western and Eastern Cage of Female Entrapment?

In-depth analysis of Mahfouz  Nov 22, 2007
This study of Mahfouz's major works of fiction is intense, revealing Allegretto-Diiulio's passion for tapping into this Nobel prize winner's soul. She unravels Mahfouz's female characters in such a way that scholars and students alike will emerge with a sense of 20th century Cairo and its detemination to survive the age-old debate on feminism. Here, Allegretto-Diiulio reveals the different attitudes between standard feminist theories and the Islamic take on feminism. She focuses primarily on Midaq Alley and Mahfouz's famous Cairo Trilogy as the basis for her analysis on sexual entrapment, domestic and spiritual entrapment. An excellent and refreshing read!
