Descrição do produto

Who will overthrow the Imam? Who will defeat the oppression, the tyranny, the injustice and the killings? ... Then, who is the Imam? Is he the man, the male, the father, the husband, the ruler, the leader? Bint Allah (the Daughter of God), a beautiful illegitimate girl, a child of sin, looked down upon by those around her, is falsely accused by the Imam of adulterous relationships and sentenced to death by stoning. This powerful and poetic novel by Egypt's leading feminist writer reveals the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state, and raises awareness of the insufferable predicament of women in a society which will ultimately self-destruct. "More than any other woman, El Saadawi has come to embody the trials of Arab Feminism."--San Francisco Chronicle "A poignant-and brave-writer."--Marie Claire

5.0 de 5 estrelas El Saadawi in Idaho 3 de maio de 2012
Por C. Norden - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
Having just finished teaching this novel in a history of the novel course to a group of college students in Idaho, I am struck by how little problem these young adults seem to have had with El Saadawi's narrative style. The problems cited with the readability of the English translation seem less to do with a flawed translation, and more to do with a narrative style motivated by two concerns primarily: a) how to represent women's experience in a patriarchal & fundamentalist society in which women are not allowed a voice, and particularly not a public, authoritative voice of the sort which the traditional novel usually depends, and b) how to create a coherent portrait of a society that is tragically divided against itself, both on ideological and class grounds, as well as in terms of gender roles.

Understood in these terms, a fragmented narrative that suggests that women's experience in such an environment is both everyone's and no-one's, and that it is only with great difficulty that we can assert with certainty that a particular set of events occurred at all, much less to person Y, and with what specific social, familial, psychological, and emotional consequences. The core image of the novel is the stoning (or knifing, or shooting) death of a woman who has been unjustly accused of having "corrupted" either a top religious leader, or a top governmental leader, or one or several other top cabinet members, including a so-named Great Writer, one empowered to provide official versions of the society's recent history and doings. This is pretty clearly El Saadawi's tip off to the reader, suggesting that she is in some fashion trying to model what a feminine "ecriture" or way of writing would look and sound like, at least one version of such, along with the strong suggestion that such writing would be forbidden, persecuted, and likely misunderstood by those for whom the official narrative was still cogent and compelling.

So no, the problem is not a bad translation, but rather unimaginative or context deficient reading. For what it's worth, the novel spoke eloquently to a significant number of young people in one of our most theocratic and socially conservative states, students who in fact praised the poetry and lyricism of both the novel and its English translation.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Brilliant, Complex and A Bit of a Challenge 2 de janeiro de 2008
Por Amanda D. Muir - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
The interwoven stories of residents of an unspecified Egyptian town and the Imam for whom their worlds revolve, The Fall of the Imam is profound, poetic, and complex. The narration is uncovential in English and does pose some challenge for English speaking readers. First person and third person narration seem to be employed interchangeably, with the perspective switching from character to character frequently. I suspect that in the Arabic in which it was written, The Fall of the Imam is beautiful and brilliant. The English translation, however, may prove somewhat difficult for western readers. Regardless, it is a worthwhile read and does provide a glimpse into a world many westerners are largely unfamiliar with.

1.0 de 5 estrelas The Fall of the Imam 29 de dezembro de 2005
Por Naqi S. Raza - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
This book is an account of a patriarchal society in a middle eastern country. Suffice to say it contains a heavy dose of realism and confusing metaphors simultaneously. I found the storyline hard to follow; too much switching between characters; and once again the metaphors were extremely confusing and hard to follow. All in all it seems as though the book has been written in arabic and translated word for word without consideration of any gramatical writing effects.
