The Sacred in Stories Symbol and Stakes of Meaning

Jalila Yacoub


This research paper relates to the short story, genre, charter and categories in which it has flexibility to open up to other types; Rather, in it, there are compatible references in dictionary, different in appearance, which may indicate chaos in the construction and harm the sacred in the essence of its meaning and the regularity of its significance. However, the narration of discourse has also, its system when the text is rendered from the symbol, and the sacred is transformed from its religious reference to an interpretive context in the collective imagination and perception of reality. Storytelling is born from stories in “palimpsests” and contrary to interpretation; the second establishes the model and the first turns to undermining what the “first newspapers” were born on, changes in structure, meaning and words in its lexicon limits to take place in a different view of the universal laws. All this chaos in the system was summed up in a narrative model entitled "Youssef.. The beautiful, perishable little Youssef" by the Syrian writer Zakaria Tamer, from his collection tagged "The Tigers on the Tenth Day"; the choice is justified by the following objectives: 1. Organization of universal texts in religion and culture within a literary genre shorthand is one of its most prominent features; 2.The order and chaos in this story and its semantic dimensions; 3.The logic of construction between the threshold and the text, the scene and the impact and the foundational text and the change of meaning.
