El Saadawi’s “In Camera” is prime 20th century Dehumanization literature. The book shows the oppressive rule of an unnamed government and it’s iron fist against outspoken individuals such as Leila, who also happens to be a woman, regarded as inferior in the saaadawi. She is dehumanized by her oppressors raping and torturing her for calling the leader “stupid”. The judge repeats her statement to the crowd of onlookers in the courtroom only to find the tables turned Apr 15, Kelsey rated it really liked it.
What a though provoking story! The message still needs to be said in today’s date. Nov 14, Bronte rated it it was amazing. I absolutely loved the story, how it gradually revealed everything that happened to Leila, to the gaping wound between her legs.
It was heartbreaking to read in her point of view, and even in her parents’ when it would suddenly jump between perspective. A great way of conveying the closeness of the family when the view would suddenly change, that her wounds were her parents’. The wound between her legs at first I didn’t understand how she got it, but after reading about her horrific experience i I absolutely loved the story, how it gradually revealed everything that happened to Leila, to the gaping wound between her legs.
The wound between her legs at first I didn’t understand how she got it, but after reading about her horrific experience it became an amazing symbol of women inferiority in the culture she lives in. The fact that her vision was taken from her, being encased in a dense fog, attempting to find her parents through sniffing around for their scents Leila was reduced to an animal.
Her humanity stripped from her, trying to call for water but having lost her voice. The lack of emotion in this piece is a great way to write because it shows how hardened she is to the turmoil she went through.
Yet the only thing she feels when she does is fear, and she prefers to keep her eyes closed. To desensitize herself from the situation. Everything she didn’t feel I felt for her, such a beautiful and tragic story.
