The revolt of the young : essays by Tawfīq Ḥakīm( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tawfiq al-Hakim (1898-1987) is recognized as one of the most important figures in the history of modern Arabic literature. Considered a pioneer in many literary forms, including drama, novels, and short stories, al-Hakim influenced generations of Egyptian writers. This book is a collection of essays originally published in 1984 that shows al-Hakim as a public intellectual addressing the ongoing conflict between generations. Al-Hakim muses on the cultural, artistic, and intellectual links and breakages between the old and the young generations. He focuses on the young and their role in the continuing development of Egyptian society, which over the course of the last century or so has undergone foreign occupation, an experiment in parliamentary democracy within a monarchical system, a socialist revolution characterized by both successes and failures, the emergence of a dictatorial presidency, and now the development of a complex political scenario currently dominated by groups with varyingly strong ties to the tenets of Islam. Al-Hakim did not live long enough to witness the most recent phases of this elongated and often disruptive process of experimentation and change, but in his writing, he focuses on the institution that he regards as crucial to any forward progress: the family. The essays present readers with a voice from the past, with uncanny foretelling of issues raised by the events that occurred in Egypt more than twenty years after al-Hakim's death. Radwan's translation, along with Roger Allen's foreword, brings to light al-Hakim's lucid and erudite commentary, much of it as relevant to the problems facing Egyptian youth today as it was when first published
Return of the spirit by Tawfīq Ḥakīm( Book )

89 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both revolution and romance are at the heart of Return of the Spirit, first published in Arabic in 1933. The story of a patriotic young Egyptian and his extended family, ending with events surrounding the 1919 revolution -- for al-Hakim, a literal awakening of the Egyptian spirit -- the strong expression of nationalist solidarity in Return of the Spirit has particular resonance now. Admiration for the novel by the military entrepreneurs who replaced Egypt's monarchy in 1952 temporarily dampened enthusiasm for it; but the Tahrir revolution has made it seem once again as fresh as today's news
