A Reflection Of Egypt In The 20Th Century Essay, Research Paper The American University in Cairo A Reflection of Egypt in the 20th century Outline: + Major argument: Many critics view Naguib Mahfouz as simply a storyteller. However, by using the Trilogy, this paper will show that Naguib Mahfouz can actually be regarded as a historian who has documented the history of Egypt in a very unique way. The Trilogy is a reflection of the political history of Egypt and it reveals many aspects of daily life in Egypt prevalent in the 20th century such as the opposition of political rights, the loosening of social norms, degradation of faith, the lack of spirituality and the gradual liberation of women. It has been said that through the Trilogy, Mahfouz gives an eyewitness account of the

country’s political, social, religious and intellectual life between the two wars; that period of turmoil in the nation’s life would have otherwise passed undocumented. + Approach: analytical I. Introduction: + The Life of Naguib Mahfouz + Brief survey of his works II.
