Stream of Days
The Stream of Days by Taha Hussein can be classified as a detailed intriguing story of a boy with only four senses. The story focuses on a day in the life of a blind boy who is being taken care of by his brother. Throughout the story, the reader comes to realize that the boy is abandoned a lot. Sometimes at the Azher to listen to lectures. Other times left in a corner at their home while his brother goes off and does things with his friends. The most common theme is the boy's thirst for knowledge. Without the use of his eyes, the boy must rely on listening in order to learn anything. While at a lecture, he becomes annoyed that the teacher is rambling and not actually teaching anything. When at home and being forgotten by his brother and his friends, the boy strains his ears to be able to hear anything he can. He becomes happy even when he can only hear an echo of voices. Another theme could be the boy's loneliness. Even without the use of his eyes, the boy can be included in most things but his brother is always abandoning him or simply just forgetting about him. This loneliness is also reflected in the boy's response to darkness. The boy literally lives in darkness, but becomes scared and depressed when the lamp is not on.
