    Zanuba Character Analysis

    • 1142 Words
    • 5 Pages

    assimilated herself into the city to be relatable to her friends in Cairo by dressing and speaking in a particular way, she never understood why she was doing the things she did. She was acting a part and mimicking, she had not adopted these new customs. This mirrored the experiences of Egypt as a nation under the rule of the British. They had adopted and endorsed the new western ways of doing things but they had never actually fully indoctrinated themselves into doing things that way. They were acting to fit in the same way that Zanuba was acting to fit in. Tawfiq Al-Hakim in Return of the Spirit is proposing that they shed these false personas and return to the Egyptian way of doing things. These changes to the Egyptian population were psychological and could be easily fixed because the original model for Egyptian life still existed within the lives they were living now.

    Dendur

    In the United States, I found the Metropolitan Museum of Art presentation of the Temple of Dendur as an example of the internalized exhibition of ancient Egyptian culture in a large-scale urban environment. In a similar manner, the Louvre presents large rooms with Egyptian columns and statuary that also depict the replication of Egyptians historical sites within the confines of the museum. This contemporary placement of Egyptian artifacts presents architectural amalgamations in the museum for…

Through the diversification of Western commodities into Egypt, Egyptians lose their self-sufficiency and nationalist values, allowing the Western world to…
