Unfortunately, I cant read Arabic so I had to discover Taha Hussein through a French translation.

طه حسين عميد الأدب العربي هو أديب ومفكر مصري تمكن من النبوغ والتفوق في إثبات ذاته على الرغم من الصعوبات الكثيرة التي واجهها في حياته، والتي يأتي في مقدمتها فقدانه لبصره، وهو ما يزال طفلاً صغيراً ولكنه أثبت بمنتهى الصمود، والقوة أن الإنسان لا يجب أن يوقفه عجزه أمام طموحه، بل على العكس من الممكن أن يكون هذا العجز هو عامل دفع وقوة، وليس عامل إحباط، وهو الأمر الذي حدث مع هذا الأديب العظيم الذي على ...more
