Description
This classic Victorian travelogue contains the collected observations of Sophia Poole, who lived in Cairo in the 1840s with her brother, orientalist Edward Lane, and her two children. While there, Poole learned Arabic and adopted Egyptian clothing, which enabled her to both observe day-to-day life in the streets and markets and also enter hammams and harems and meet personally with Egyptian women of different classes—including, ultimately, the family of the viceroy Mohamed Ali Pasha. With her sharp eye for detail and understanding of underlying customs, she records everything from the pasha's daughter smoking her jewel-encrusted pipe to the occupations of ladies of leisure, and the homesick slave girl.
