The World of Naguib Mahfouz. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2000 (Egypt and Israel).
Emery, Ken
This resource packet was created to allow teachers to easily select from some of the short works of Naguib Mahfouz, probably Egypt's most famous and prolific writer, that will familiarize students with the author and his world. The packet first gives an overview of the life and work of Mahfouz, citing seven sources for further information. The resource packet is then divided into two parts: (1) "Introduction" and (2) "The Stories." The introduction suggests Internet activities that teach about Cairo (Egypt) and Islam. It offers ideas for student research on 20th century Egypt. Part 2 contains eight short stories (translated into English from Arabic) which reflect a broad range of Naguib Mahfouz's writings. (BT)
