Sufism in the Novel: "Cat's Eyes"
Miniawi, Nayera
Journal of International Education Research, v9 n3 p253-256 2013
"Cat's Eyes" is a novel about suffering and endurance, early marriage, spirituality and the sanctuary it provides, and Sufism in particular. It uses certain motifs to depict the psychological suffering of a young girl, caused by her conservative father and unsatisfactory marriage, which persists until she finally reaches a moment of spiritual clarity. This paper focuses primarily on how this novel's motifs illustrate the revelatory power of Sufism's unifying worldview.
