Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to offer an overview of the New Generation of Egyptian writers of the nineties. These new writers introduce an experimental novel, which has come to represent an icon in the Egyptian literary field. After a concise analysis of this phenomenon from a socio-literary point of view, I examine three novels, which present very clear affinities: Hurā' Matāha Qūṭiyya (Chats of a Gothic Labyrinth) by Muṣṭafā Ḏikrī, Taṣrīḥ bi-l-ġiyāb (Exit-permit) by Muntaṣir al-Qaffāš, Dunyazād (Dunyazād) by May al-Tilmisānī. The authors propose an innovative narration, which is no longer focused on History, on ideological issues and on the collective self of society, but focuses entirely on the self. Through a close reading of the texts, this study proposes some key readings of this new narrative and poetic form which claims to be on the «margins of History».
