"On the surface, this is the story of a crippled beggar in an Arab village who sits on his dolly in a busy street of his village begging for alms. Guilt, need, contempt and fear impel the villagers to give him money; and perhaps these very things impel them to their final act of mercy to Ali. But beneath the surface this is a parable of justice. It is concerned with the concept of punishment. The theme is universal. The story takes place wherever people are put in prison-for whatever reasons-executed or punished in any way. This is an allegory on what the author calls the absurdity of punishment-all punishment particularly in view of man's essential tragedies." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Standard Weight.
