This paper explores the category of childhood in Sudanese culture in relation to the Sudanese notion of the unhomely in Muhammad Sa'īd Shūlī's Hūsh Hamd and Sayf al-Dīn Hasan Bābikir's al-Zamān al-Fadā'ī al-Mi'waj. The theoretical framework is drawn from Sigmund Freud and Homi Bhabha. Having examined childhood and the Sudanese notion of the homely the paper goes on to inquire into the motif of the "unhomely" in the two novels using tradition, animal instinct, gender violence, intragender guiles and treachery and patriarchal privileges as strategies.
