This essay aims to analyse various forms of literary censorship in present-day Egypt. Since the abolishment of institutional censorship of literature and the press in the 1970s, the main instruments of silencing speech that is perceived as offensive or dangerous have been the Egyptian Penal Code and blasphemy lawsuits, based on the Islamic principle calledḥisba. The paper explores the relationship between censorship and the perception of literature among the reading public. It also discusses some of the famous blasphemy trials such as the one with the academic Naṣr Abū Zayd or the writer Aḥmad Nājī.
