Abstract:Each episode, especially the long narratives, is a comment on the period in the life of the Arab nation during which it was written. Salih's main narrator is constantly engaged in recollection, reorganization, and interpretation of the past. What he remembers and what he forgets, what he understands and what he does not, and his quest for identity and vision, all revolve around the concern for Good and Evil, freedom and oppression, cultural values and their mediation and transformation in, through, and as a result of, encountering the Other.
