    The Beggar has revealed itself to be a necessary book for me Especially for the week I just experienced There was much doubt and despair on tap than any ennui The protagonist of this novella suffers from an “illness “ He no longer finds anything to have meaning nothing elicits feeling He is a wealthy Cairo attorney and he is simply indifferent There is a jagged stream of consciousness throughout this disturbing narrative The protagonist’s condition is a stand in for the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 The perceived failure of its utopian promise Much of the novel occurs from sunset until dawn the clamor of a smoky lurid nocturnal reality becomes a welcome refuge for our addled barrister He abandons most of his respectable trappings and yet he clings to his eldest daughter herself a poet The narrative takes a turn when a close friend is released from prison a revolutionary who never betrayed the protagonist despite torture and 25 years of confinementThe pacing of The Beggar is astonishing as are the images A whiff of orange blossoms here and an odd uery there do you believe in god? One aspirant for his devotion tells him I speak from the heart His curt reply the heart is only a pump I loved this work and find myself hungering for Mahfouz

    While this probably should not have been my first Mahfouz I found it interesting There is an introduction in this edition that says his well known Cairo Trilogy was produced at an entirely different period in the author's life but perhaps importantly in a different period in Egypt's history The Beggar was one of a group of seven novels published in the aftermath of the 1952 Revolution The main character Omar Bey was one of a group who tried to effect change during the reign of King Farouk One of his friends was imprisoned Since the Revolution however Omar pursued a successful law career and became wealthy in some disregard for the goals of those revolutionaries looking to improve the lives of his fellow citizens Much of this is given in backstory but forms the basis for Omar's despair and malaise And he comes to the uestion many have put What is the meaning of my existence? He asks this uestion freuently while trying to explain his illnessOne of the interesting ways that Mahfouz presents his story is Omar's interior dialog Sometimes the dialog is interrupted with a non dialog paragraph where Omar talks to himself In doing so Mahfouz usually employed a second person style You thought thus and so or You believed this way sort of thing The first time it was used I wasn't certain what I was reading but it uickly became clear I am assuming this was a good translation so that I would happily read of this author On the other hand I'm not at all interested in reading meaning of life novels so we'll see This is very short only 140 pages and I kept turning the pages It is not a happy read and Omar is not likable For this reason only it drops into the top of my 3 star reads

    I read this at school years ago I cannot recall all the details but I remember very well the gist of the story being morally poor can be worse than being financially broke

    Mental health issues in 1960s EgyptSo my initial thoughts prior to the discussion in two days timeThis book is about a guy who is having some sort of a break down If it happened in this day and age he would be considering going to a shrink rather than a GP he certainly had the money to do soApparently there are a lot of political allegories and this is what I hope will be clarified at the book group as I don't know a lot about Egyptian politics at the timeI really felt for his friend Othoman who has been in jail for 20 years and is horrified to see how complacent his friends have become while he was away I also felt for his wife Zeinab who had been rejected by her Christian family when she decided to marry a Muslimand his daughterin fact everyone except Omar the protagonist He needed help true but he just couldn't appreciate the destruction he was leaving in his wakeEdit 8th Jan I just found a review in US by 'Gio' who proposes that Omar is a stand in for the author in asking those uestions what is worthwhile? does God exist? if so what is He? what do I do now having done nothing of worth so far? what would it be like to be truly happy? why do I care so much about happiness?This makes a lot of sense to me so many books are in some way semi autobiographical why shouldn't Naguib Mahfouz do the same thing?Book group discussion tomorrowWell firstly I didn't get much clarification regarding the political allusions There was suggestion that his friends represented aspects of Egyptian life Mustafa as the reasonably contented TV journalist Othoman as the zealous objector Omar himself as the dissatisfied well to do lawyer who would have preferred to follow his artistic talentsSecondly for such a thin volume there seemed to be an awful lot of differing opinions about the bookpossible spoilers aheadOmar in his desperation turns to promiscuity but his improvement is short lived Then he feels brief happiness in a startling sunrise; finally he abandons his old life completely to live a hermit style existenceA rather strange novel that definitely benefited from being able to discuss it with others

    Rating 3050The story is decent It is about Omar a middle aged man who suffers from mental health issues and anxiety which causes him lots of pain and trouble in his relationships with his family and friends His main uestion is why do we have to live if god is going to take us one day The book has lots of philosophical stuff going on for it and many people have said they are actually the author's uestioning of human being's existence and purpose of living uestions like whether there is a god or not what he wants from us and what we have to do etcWhere this book is really weak is the format it is written in I found myself to get confused due to the irregularity of the format The book is written in third person's perspective at some parts at other parts it is first person's perspective then in addition to this and to make it even confusing many times the main character was talking to himself as a different person like saying You have done this and now you need to do that I seriously thought he was talking to a different character Another issue I had with the writing in this book was that the book hardly had any sets or atmosphere It is filled most of the part with dialogue I have no problem with this because I like reading plays but I have a problem when you keep jumping between different scenes and different sets every other line within the same paragraph without building any sort of set time or place I think this poor format thing has spoiled it for me or else I think this book had the potential to be much better

    Amazing Amazing AmazingSpoiler AlertYou'd imagine a successful man having his life slowly being destroyed dismantled and despaired due to maybe lust or envy or maybe having being friends with the bad company or drugs would be a predictable situation; and that would be true for most people who were in such a situation perhaps but not Mr Omar Mr Omar found his soul in a desolated wasteland filled with colours now bleak now lifeless now godless thanks to his existential anxiety Thanks to the uestion that long conuered many souls throughout the years sending them ashore with existential angst and chronic depression The uestion that has no parallel; in fact it is the uestion of all uestions The uestion we feel the duty and the burden to answer Is there a meaning to life? A devastating uestion that strikes this former poet to make him leave his law firm his two daughters his closest friends and life ultimately to go for god Awaiting the golden moment of seeing his face appear out of the voidHaving this illness Mr Omar married to Zainab lover of Warda and occasionally sleeps with Margaret seeks to find the cure to existential angst and fails miserably only to find that the people he cherishes the most find his wallowing in misery very silly and irrelevant to everything that life is truly about

  9. Rami Hamze Rami Hamze says:

    Omar is a middle aged successful lawyer with a loving family Amidst absurdity he is in constant search for purpose and answers for life death and god He is sick of his success his work and even his family; while the only way is science he realizes he is not a scientist and thus too late to find answers so he seeks nothingness and attempts to escape from the endless cosmic prisonGood short novel by Mahfouz who seems to be the subject of my next deep dive exploration

    Camus has nothing on this very small book I'm reading it again after 13 years or so Loved it the first time even when bits of it flew over my head Rediscovering it now For giggles download the movie featuring Mahmoud Morsi as Omar
