[William Golding wrote three travel texts on Egypt in which he mixed the factual and the fictional. The texts reveal Golding's long process of negotiating theories of identity. This article argues that Golding's theory of human identity imparted fluidity to the meaning of the country with which he interacted, turning it into a multiple and ever-changing place that shifts its meaning with changes in human perceptions and experiences. The Egypt he discusses changes in each successive text, and as it changes, its meanings multiply and yet disengage from the actual to reterritorialize in the fantastic. ﻛﺘﺐ ﻭﻟﻴﻢ ﺟﻮﻟﺪﻧﺞ ﺛﻼﺛﺔ ﻧﺼﻮﺹ ﻋﻦ ﺃﺳﻔﺎﺭﻩ ﺇﻟﻰ ﻣﺼﺮ ﺇﻣﺘﺰﺝ ﻓﻴﻬﺎ ﺍﻟﺨﻴﺎﻝ ﺑﺎﻟﻮﺍﻗﻊ٠ ﻭﻳﻨﻄﻠﻖ ﺗﻮﺻﻴﻔﻪ ﻟﻬﻮﻳﺔ ﻣﺼﺮ ﻣﻦ ﻗﻨﺎﻋﺘﻪ ﺑﺘﻌﺪﺩ ﻭﺻﻴﺮﻭﺭﺓ ﺍﻟﻬﻮﻳﺔ؛ ﻓﺒﺪﻻ ﹰﻣﻦ ﺃﻥ ﻳﻘﺪﻡ ﻣﺼﺮ ﻛﻜﺘﻠﺔ ﻣﺼﻤﺘﺔ ﺗﺴﺘﻤﺪ ﻣﻌﻨﺎﻫﺎ ﻣﻦ ﻫﻮﻳﺔ ﺟﻮﻫﺮﻳﺔ٬ ﺗﻨﻌﻜﺲ ﻗﻨﺎﻋﺔ ﺟﻮﻟﺪﻧﺞ ﺑﺎﻟﻤﻔﻬﻮﻡ ﺍﻟﻤﺘﻌﺪﺩ ﻟﻠﻬﻮﻳﺔ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺗﻔﺎﻭﺿﻪ ﻋﻠﻰ ﻣﻌﻨﻰ ﻣﺼﺮ٬ ﺧﺎﺻﺔ ﺃﻥ ﻣﺼﺮ ﻓﻲ ﺧﻄﺎﺑﻪ ﺗﺴﺘﺨﺪﻡ ﻛﻜﻨﺎﻳﺔ ﻋﻦ ﺍﻟﺘﺎﺭﻳﺦ ﻭﺍﻟﺒﺸﺮﻳﺔ٠ ﺗﻮﺿﺢ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺃﻥ ﻣﺮﺍﺟﻌﺎﺕ ﻧﻈﺮﻳﺔ ﺍﻟﻬﻮﻳﺔ ﺍﻧﻌﻜﺴﺖ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺗﺼﻮﻳﺮ ﺍﻟﻜﺎﺗﺐ ﻟﻬﺬﺍ ﺍﻟﺒﻠﺪ؛ ﻓﺘﻌﺪﺩﺕ ﻭﺗﺒﺎﻳﻨﺖ ﻣﻌﺎﻧﻴﻪ ﻭﺩﻻﻻﺗﻪ ﺗﺒﻌﺎﹰ ﻟﻤﺮﺍﺟﻌﺎﺕ ﺍﻟﻜﺎﺗﺐ ﻟﻤﻔﻬﻮﻡ ﺍﻟﻬﻮﻳﺔ ﺍﻹﻧﺴﺎﻧﻴﺔ ٬ﻭﻟﻜﻨﻬﺎ ﻣﻊ ﺗﻌﺪﺩﻫﺎ ﻫﺬﺍ ﺍﻧﻔﺼﻠﺖ ﻋﻦ ﺍﻟﻮﺍﻗﻊ ﺍﻟﻤﻌﻴﺶ ﻭﺍﻗﺘﺮﺑﺖ ﺃﻛﺜﺮ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﺨﻴﺎﻝ٠]
