  • Return of the Spirit

  • First published in Arabic in 1933, Return of the Spirit follows a patriotic young Egyptian and his extended family as they grapple with the events leading up to the 1919 Egyptian revolution. This is a trail-blazing political novel that illustrates the way one man's spiritual awakening ties in with the political awakening of a nation.

Tawfiq al-Hakim (1898-1987) is considered one of the most significant figures in twentieth-century Arabic literature and Return of the Spirit is one of Egypt's most important novels. Al-Hakim is also known as the founder of modern Egyptian drama.
