Abstract or Summary
  • This study examines the theme of power in Naguib Mahfouz's The Cairo Trilogy (1956/57). Contrasting my analysis with earlier review of the novel that emphasized a hegemonic patriarchal power, I argue that such power was constantly subverted by the dominated: family members of the patriarch. Using James C. Scott's notions of public and hidden transcripts, this paper reads the power display by the patriarch, and the hidden discourse of the powerless, and reinterprets the dynamics of the relationship between dominate and dominated.
