The Truth about Aladdin

Aladdin

Enchanted flying carpets and genies may still be up for debate, but we have reason to believe that “Aladdin” could actually be based on a real person.

Reports suggest that it all comes from a Syrian man, Hanna Diyab, who told the tale to the French translator Antoine Galland. The world believed Galland was the creator, but cultural historian Arafat Razzaque said that isn’t true.

The story of Aladdin appeared for the first time in Galland’s translated version. It was of “One Thousand and One Nights,” also known as “Arabian Nights,” he made clear that he got the story from Diyab.

“You may wonder whether Diyab actually existed”, Razzaque said. Recent evidence indicates yes. The proof was obtained in the form of hand wriiten manuscript.

“A lot of new research being done about the man behind Aladdin,” says Arafat A. Razzaque, researcher at Cambridge University’s Centre of Islamic Studies.

“The twist in recent years is that in the 1990s, 1993, a volume, a manuscript came to light that’s at the Vatican library and it turns out it is a memoir or autobiography and a travel log written by this mysterious man, Hanna Diyab, who we had been speculating about for over a century,” Razzaque said.

The two men spoke over the course of numerous one-on-one meetings — with Diyab divulging vivifarous stories he heard throughout his travels, including other popular tales such as well as “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.”

“Aladdin might be the young Arab Maronite from Aleppo, marveling at the jewels and riches of Versailles,” Horta says. “Diyab himself came from a modest background, and hungered for the class ascension that occurred in story of Aladdin. He wanted to have a market stall, and in the Aladdin story, the magician, masquerading as Aladdin’s uncle, promises to set him up as a cloth merchant with a shop of his own so he might live as a gentleman.”

“That’s a mind-blowing revision of our understanding of where the story came from — the recognition that Aladdin is not just the fantasy of a 60-year-old French scholar and translator, but that it was born through the narrative skills and distinctive experience of a 20-year-old traveler from Aleppo,” Horta tells Time. “Diyab was ideally placed to embody the overlapping world of East and West, blending the storytelling traditions of his homeland with his youthful observations of the wonder of 18th-century France.”

In one session of the log, Diyab described evidently how Galland’s buddy, Paul Lucas, had presented him to the court of Louis XIV in Versailles.Aladdin

“Lucas insisted that Diyab dress in stereotypically Oriental Fashion,” says Horta.

“A long tunic, baggy pantaloons, a headscarf of Damascene fabric, a precious belt, a silver dagger and a fur cap from Cairo,” the outfit was sad to have included.

“There is little in the writings of Galland that would suggest that he was capable of developing a character like Aladdin with sympathy, but Diyab’s memoir reveals a narrator adept at capturing the distinctive psychology of a young protagonist, as well as recognizing the kinds of injustices and opportunities that can transform the path of any youthful adventurer,” Horta explains.

Aladdin “The day Diyab told the story of Aladdin to Galland, there were riots due to food shortages during the winter and spring of 1708 to 1709, and Diyab was sensitive to those people in a way that Galland is not. When you read this diary, you see this solidarity among the Arabs who were in Paris at the time.”

Celestial Bodies fame Jokha Alharthi wins Man Booker International Prize

Jokha Alharthi

Omani turns out to be first Arabic creator to win award and shares £50,000 prize with translator Marilyn Booth.

Jokha Alharthi has turned into the main Arabic writer to win the Man Booker International Prize with her account of Oman’s fast change told through the crystal of one family.

The creator of Celestial Bodies, the primary Omani lady to have a novel converted into English, shares the £50,000 prize with her interpreter Marilyn Booth.

Jokha Alharthi

Divine Bodies is “a book to prevail upon the head and the heart in equivalent measure, worth waiting over”, said history specialist Bettany Hughes, seat of the judges. “Interlacing voices and courses of events are wonderfully served by the pacing of the novel. Its sensitive masterfulness draws us into a luxuriously envisioned network – opening out to handle significant inquiries of time and mortality and irritating parts of our common history.

“The style is a metaphor for the subject, subtly resisting cliches of race, slavery and gender. The translation is precise and lyrical, weaving in the cadences of both poetry and everyday speech. Celestial Bodies evokes the forces that constrain us and those that set us free.”

Jokha Alharthi

Exquisitely organized and tight, Celestial Bodies, distributed by Sandstone Press, is set in the town of al-Awafi, where we experience three sisters: Mayya, who weds Abdallah after a deplorability; Asma, who weds from a feeling of obligation; and Khawla, who rejects all offers while hanging tight for her adored, who has emigrated to Canada. These three ladies and their families witness Oman develop from a customary, slave-owning society which is gradually reclassifying itself after the pilgrim time, to the intersection of its perplexing present.

Exploring the victor for The Irish Times, Prof Michael Cronin, chief of the Trinity Center for Literary and Cultural Translation, expressed: “How ladies admission in changed conditions and what they are and are not permitted to recollect is a repetitive distraction.

“Alharthi tracks the fortunes of a merchant family with a troubled past in the slave trade and concentrates in particular on the lives and destinies of sisters, Mayya, Asma and Khowla. Ranging across three generations with a crowd of voices tracking Oman’s shift from a typical desert dynasty of the village al-Awafi to the urban oasis of the city Muscat, the novel is a beautifully achieved account of lives pulling at the edges of change.

“The writing is teasingly elliptical throughout and there is a kind of poetic understatement that draws the reader into the domestic settings and public tribulations of the three sisters. They possess agency and character and in their different ways deal with the logjam of tradition and the uncertain freedoms of expanding worlds. The novel is also told in part through the voice of Abdallah, the husband of Mayya, whose tale of abuse at the hands of his father Sulayman, also picks up on the unspoken atrocities of slavery in the region.

“Celestial Bodies deftly undermines recurrent stereotypes about Arab language and cultures but most importantly brings a distinctive and important new voice to world literature.”

Alharthi was conceived in Oman in 1978. She is the writer of two past accumulations of short fiction, a youngsters’ book, and three books in Arabic. Familiar with English, she finished a PhD in Classical Arabic Poetry in Edinburgh, and educates at Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat. She lives in Oman.

Marilyn Booth was conceived in Boston in 1955. An individual at Magdalen College, Oxford, where she lives, she holds the Khalid receptacle Abdallah Al Saud Chair for the Study of the Contemporary Arab World at the Oriental Institute.

The 2019 prize denotes the finish of the Man Group’s 18-year sponsorship. The prizes, supported for the following five years by Crankstart, will currently be known as the Booker Prize and the International Booker Prize.
