Synopsis

Tawfiq al-Hakim is recognized as the undisputed creator of a literature of the theater. In this volume, Tawfiq al-Hakim's fame as a playwright is given prominence. Among his best-known plays are "The Sultan's Dilemma" and "The Tree Climber". Tawfiq al-Hakim produced several of the earliest examples of Arabic novels, including the delightful "Diary of a Country Prosecutor", and many short stories. In an extract from "The Prison of Life", an autobiography, Tawfiq al-Hakim writes with commendable frankness about himself.

TAWFIQ AL-HAKIM (1898-1989), Egypt's best-known playwright, did for the Arabic theater what Naguib Mahfouz did for the Arabic novel. He wrote over seventy plays, as well as a number of novels and short stories and an autobiography. DENYS JOHNSON-DAVIES, described by Edward Said as "the leading Arabic-English translator of our time," began his career with the translation of a collection of short stories in 1947 and has since produced more than thirty volumes of translation of modern Arabic literature. His latest translation is Mohamed El-Bisatie's Hunger (AUC Press, 2008).
