    Summary

    “kau bertanya mengapa aku memilih kata ‘kesempurnaan’ bukan? Bayangkan sebuah syi’ir... sebuah ghazl. Menceritakan dengan tersurat kecantikan seorang perempuan, rupanya yang seperti rembulan purnama dan siluetnya bak angsa— jangan tertawa dulu, Aurens. Sekarang, apa inti dari semua perumpamaan indah itu? Sekedar birahi tak terkontrol.”

    Tawa Lawrence meledak, ia harus menutupi mulutnya agar orang-orang tak menyangkanya sebagai predator gurun yang berkeliaran. Disebelahnya, Ali ikut terkekeh, dan tak seorangpun dari mereka meneguk minuman.

    Summary

    Sharif Ali dari Bani Harith adalah sesuatu yang ganjil. Entah bagaimana Lawrence merasa seolah sosok itu tak seharusnya ada. Katakanlah ‘Benci dalam Pandangan Pertama’. Pemikiran Ali yang tipikal badui, menembak mati Tafas yang berasal dari kabilah lain, dan pemikiran Lawrence yang tipikal intelek Eropa menganggap adat istiadat itu sebagai sesuatu yang biadab. Hal itu harusnya cukup untuk menjadikan mereka air dan minyak.

    Summary

    I could see very clearly despite the dark, and indeed for once I did not stumble as I walked over the rough ground. I had no destination except away, a brute animal instinct of flight mastering my limbs while my mind busied with less coarse things, solacing itself in the smell of worm-wood, bitter and clean, and the spare barren walls of the valley, a worn purple like heather against the night.

    Summary

    Dihadapannya, Lawrence tampak tertegun dan berulangkali mengerjapkan mata. Ujung mulutnya perlahan terangkat dan sebuah senyum penuh makna tersirat di wajahnya. Ali ikut tersenyum. Mereka saling menggenggam erat tangan mereka yang masih bertautan.

    Pikir Ali, jika Lawrence adalah bintang, maka ia harap Lawrence bisa bersinar selamanya.

    Summary

    Ali told himself that he had not come here expecting to be embraced and kissed like a brother. He had not come here expecting to find Lawrence full of joy, or apologetic for not having sought to contact Ali himself. He had not come here expecting to find Lawrence sane.

    In these regards, he was not disappointed.

    Summary

    If you wish loudly enough in the desert, a djinn might give you what you want — or what you think you want. For trope bingo square “bodyswap”. Ali and Lawrence swap bodies at Damascus for one night before Lawrence leaves Arabia for good, and Lawrence feels very acutely the fact that he does not belong to the desert, no matter what he wishes.

    Summary

    "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." -- T.E. Lawrence

    The romance arc of Lawrence of Arabia (and if you don't think there is a romance arc, just read some of David Lean's thoughts on the subject) told from Ali's perspective.

    Summary

    English slumped only a little on his camel, with Gasim clinging to him, half-dead. As men approached, English sat straighter, his head held higher. He did not even glance down at the water Farraj held up to him. Ali thought--he liked to think--that the man’s eyes had already found him in the approaching crowd. And that English would not have taken water from a dozen men, because he was waiting for just one to offer it.
