Since reading “Seasons of Migration to the North” by Tayeb Salih in high school I realized the book was a masterpiece and this presentation seeks to uncover exaclty why through an intensive examination of the themes, language and context of the book. The presentation uses the four paradigms of “exile”, the metaphor of the village and the Nile, sexuality and post-colonialism to unpack what made this book so revolutionary then and still so relevant today.
