but This novel is one of comparisons colonial vs post colonial youth vs age male vs female agrarian vs the culture of the city but it is also a lyrical story of people living by the Nile as their forefathers had for centuries So many influences at play here.Mustafa Sa eed used the education provided by the British to leave for England and conquer he wrote books, taught the British young, captivated British women, but ultimately returned to the Sudan The Narrator follows a similar route but indulges inesoteric education poetry while in England He does not cut the huge swath through England that Sa eed does but also returns home to become a civil servant Which man is the migrant who has truly come home, I wonder Was it likely that what had happened to Mustafa Sa eed could have happened to me He had said that he was a lie, so was I also a lie I am from here is not this reality enough I too had lived with them But I had lived with them superficially, neither loving nor hating them I used to treasure within me the image of this little village, seeing it wherever I went with the eye of my imagination p 41 One of my fellow GR readers has said this book should be read twice to really feel what is or has happened I think she is correct and I believe I will read this book again someday to see what new secrets, feelings, insights unfold Certainly the experience of reading it was excellent, though not always easy But that is one of the pluses of cross cultural and time exploration We may not always approve of every detail but we may learn.There s so much here and so many possible meanings colored by our own individual cultural influences I liked the book quite a lot It s beautifully written But that is despite the misogynistic viewpoint that was probably true in the life of the village and the people in the countryside of Sudan I disliked how that was amped up with racism when it came to the Northern women I don t want books to be written from a pc point of view but when half the world s worth is judged by looks, sexuality and their usefulness to men it doesn t enhance my enjoyment of it Do African Americans like reading I liked the book quite a lot It s beautifully written But that is despite the misogynistic viewpoint that was probably true in the life of the village and the people in the countryside of Sudan I disliked how that was amped up with racism when it came to the Northern women I don t want books to be written from a pc point of view but when half the world s worth is judged by looks, sexuality and their usefulness to men it doesn t enhance my enjoyment of it Do African Americans like reading about the slaves in Gone with the Wind I want to say two things, the first is to quote a GR author, Emer MartinI asked them why when they persecute men, for religion or colour it was seen by the world as oppression and when they persecute women, it was dismissed as tradition Secondly, if the book had been written from any other point of view, it would have been dishonest And this honest point of view didn t make me dislike the characters or the book or the author, but gave meinsight into where the Rotherham and other grooming gangs came from and why their communities didn t give them up We all share this tribal, wanting to protect our own, feeling, but hopefully we have moved on enough to out those whose who are criminally evil That s my point of view Perhaps another culture would give a different weight to that, or think of it in a different way Books like this help me try and understand that, but I don t really understand it, not at all.There are a lot of good reviews of this book I only mentioned one aspect Don t let it put you off just because the world view is one that I find difficult to pass over when reading It s a very good read that made me think On advice I have had to rewrite a considerable part of this review so I remain pc and don t give offence to anyone who might misinterpret what I mean, so I did I m not really happy about this I don t see why some cultures should get a free pass, and especially so when they are brought into and maintained in a country that does not support them But I have to have some friends left to buy me drinks The narrator of the novel is a young man returning from studies in the North Europe to his village near the Nile in Sudan He periodically visits the village of his childhood, while working in Khartoum The village did not change much since his departure, his family and his tribe are still there, the independence of Sudan and its modernization is slow to reach

in the North Europe to his village near the Nile in Sudan He periodically visits the village of his childhood, while working in Khartoum The village did not change much since his departure, his family and his tribe are still there, the independence of Sudan and its modernization is slow to reach those parts although some progress was visible When he first come back he discovers a new face, that of Mustafa Sa eed, a stranger who moved to the village, married a local woman and settled for an agricultural life Not much is known about the man s past and our narrator becomes fascinated by the mystery surrounding this man and, one fateful night, manages to obtain a confession from him which will haunt all his future life Both the narrator and Mustafa share an education abroad and the need to return to their ruts However, Mustafa s time in London is dark and hides a terrible secret, including terrible treatment towards Northern women As the Introduction written by the translator says, Season of migration to the North is an African response to the terrible Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad I was lucky to read that book a few years ago and I could spot the connections For starters, they both involve a narrator who develops and obsession with another man with a dark soul If in HoD the victims were the Congolese Africans, here they are replaced by European women who fall for Mustafa s charms and are destroyed by the experience for details I will let you read the short novel Moreover, in both books, the writing is poetic although in this one I actually understood something There is a fine border between real and surreal and sometimes it is difficult to distinguished between the two states There a few political statements as well, since the book was written after Sudan obtained independence and the white people were mostly still in power, corruption was high and progress was slow Also, the author makes a case of the unjust treatment of women in Sudan and their lack of rights Tayeb Salih is considered one of the best Arabic authors and I can see why after reading his most known work It might not be for everyone but I think it is worth trying, Mawsim al Hijrah il

the Nile in the 1950 s after writing a PhD thesis on the life of an obscure English poet Mustafa Sa eed, the main protagonist of the novel, is a child of British colonialism, and a fruit of colonial education He is also a monstrous product of his time The unnamed narrator is eager to make a contribution to the new postcolonial life of his country On his arrival home, the Narrator encounters a new villager named Mustafa Sa eed who exhibits none of the adulation for his achievements that most others do, and he displays an antagonistically aloof nature Mustafa betrays his past one drunken evening by wistfully reciting poetry in fluent English, leaving the narrator resolute to discover the stranger s identity The Narrator later asks Mustafa about his past, and Mustafa tells the Narrator much of his story, often saying I am no Othello, Othello was a lie, as well as I am a lie 2012 1390 105 9789642950225 1391 20 1390 140 9789643624613 1395 1394 170 9789648978292 1929 2009 2009 1960 2001
