قصر الشوق

? وقد ترك حياة الليل، يقرر عبد الجواد العودة إلى منزل زبيدة العالمة ويفاجأ بأن طفلة الأمس زنوبة قد كبرت وأصبحت فتاة توقع زنوبة السيد عبد الجواد فى حبها وتقنعه بشراء عوامة لها، ولكنها فى نفس الوقت تحب ياسين ابنه دون ان تعرف حقيقة ا?. I liked this less respect to Palace Walk the first book of the Cairo Trilogy Events start again five years after the end of Palace Walk We meet again all the members of the Al Sayyid Ahmad family except Fahmy of course and kids are grown up the two daughters are married and have children Yasin continues his dissolute life marrying and divorcing Kamal is now a teen has to decide what he wants to study falls in love for the first time and starts to compare religion and scienceThe whole story talks above all about the male characters Amina and her daughters are only in the background We know also about their lives but pretty the whole book is dedicated to Kamal Yasin and their father Some parts were dragging above all the part dedicated to Kamal s platonic love and his inner monologues I had a hard time with this part because I couldn t relate to this perfect or naive love and his inner struggle I liked a bit when he starts to struggle about his beliefs and turns from believer to agnostic though this part was too uick The author doesn t investigate it in details and so I had the impression that Kamal changed from one day to the otherWhat I found interesting is that through Kamal s life we could see how things were changing in Egypt The youth starts to uestion religion and they want freedom We can see this slow change also with some other characters Amina who had lived till now as a recluse in her own house is now free to go to her daughters or to the mosue Khadija and Aisha have both a relaxed marriage compared to that of their mother because their husbands are openmindedAnother part I didn t like and it was the other half of the book were all the illicit relationships of Yasin and Al Sayyid Ahmad Yasin divorced then he wants to marry again but in the meantime he has a sexual relationship with the mother of his bride This same woman was in the past a lover of his father Al Sayyid Ahmad starts a relationship with Zanuba who had been a lover of his son but at the end Zanuba marries Yasin It was really too much and unbelievable that father and son had often sexual relations with the same women though in different timesAll in all I liked it but it was less enthralling compared to the first book and some parts were dragging and not believableWill now start Sugar Street the third book of the Cairo Trilogy

Summary قصر الشوق

بعد وفاة فهمى ابن السيد أحمد عبدالجواد، تمر خمس سنوات، ويخرج الأب إلى الحياة لقد انتقلت بناته بعد زواجهن إلى حى قصر الشوق بالجمالية خلال العشرينات من هذا القرن، حيث ولدت زنوبة فى بيت العالمة زبيدة ولم يلتفت إليها السيد عبد الجوا?. This is the second book of the Cairo Trilogy that picks up approximately five years after the end of Palace Walk the previous book and covers the approximate time span from 1925 to 1927 of the life of a family living in old Cairo Egypt The previous book had ended with the tragic death of one of the sons who had shown great potential as a political leader At the beginning of this book we learn that the father of the family al Sayyid Ahmad had modified his profligate ways during the intervening five years and had abstained from adultery but continued with partying into the night At the beginning of this book he slips back into his old ways after all one can t live a penitent life foreverThe oldest son Yasin leaves the family home to move to the house of his deceased biological mother located on Palace of Desire Alley This move is forced because he married a woman unacceptable to the family his step mother in particular This second marriage of his soon fails like the first and he ends up marrying for a third time to an entertainer which is scandalous to the family s honor than the previous second marriageThe love sick yearnings of the youngest son Kamal are thoroughly explored by the book The account of his obsessive pinning for her love provides an account of the internal thoughts of a young man infatuated with a young lady He is in his upper teens his friends are headed in different directions some to school others to travel and work In the end his unreuited love pushes him into sampling the life styles of his older brother and fatherI m convinced that the story being told in this trilogy is largely autobiographic and that the author sees himself in the character of Kamal There are many pieces of evidence for this conclusion and the final giveaway is the fact that Kamal in this story aspires to be a writer of novels He dreams of writing a big long novel This trilogy fits those aspirations Mahfouz the author won the 1988 Nobel Prize in LiteratureThe political happenings in Egypt during this time period are mentioned but are very much peripheral to the story The conseuences of a fast modernizing society with differing expectations and possibilities are implicit throughout the storyThe book ends with simultaneous pending death and pending birth Near the end the aging father has some health problems leading the reader to expect perhaps he will die Instead the ending goes in another direction Geschichten aus Latexia very much peripheral to the story The conseuences of a fast modernizing society with differing expectations and possibilities are implicit throughout the storyThe book ends with simultaneous pending death and pending birth Near the end the aging father has some health problems leading the reader to expect perhaps he will die Instead the ending goes in another direction
