The Egyptian south, the Upper Egypt, with its stringent morals and hot climate, is Jahji at-Tahira Abd Allah's favourite topic. This Egyptian author ranks among the most outstanding Arabic prose writers. In his short stories and novels, he outlines an archetypal world of the south, living in a symbiosis with the nature and staying confident to the ancestral tradition. Family, patriarchal as it is, is the source of a whole array of themes to Abd Allah, including so specific ones to the region being described as endogamic marriage, family revenge or honour killings. In his prose works, this author often transgresses the illusion of the reality, turning toward a magical realism. He is also a master of parable, as makes parallel references to contemporary problems of the Arab world.
