FOREWORD

The English title Wedding Song is an attempt to pre­
serve some of the multiple ironies in the Arabic title
Afah al-�bbah. Literally, Afah al-�bbah might be
interpreted as meaning something like "wedding
festivities at the saint's tomb." This is a Cairene
tale, however, and in this instance al-qubbah refers
to a palace that was one of the official residences
of the former khedives of Egypt. Naguib Mahfouz
explained to me that the weddings of the khedivial
family were marked by processions with singing
and dancing, and that songs sung on these occa­
sions, popularly repeated, came to be known as af
rah al-qubbah. Hence Wedding Song.
O.E.K.
