Edward William Lane has his own inspiration as a reason for coming into Egypt. The zealous attachment to the study of oriental literature and particular desire to render familiarity with the Arabs' language, manners, and their customs were the main reasons for Lane's visit to Egypt. Due to this visit, his language study advanced faster than expected. For him, studying Arabic and learning about Egyptian society were closely entwined processes. Part of Lane's stay in Egypt and having his Egyptian friends created a lot of differences in him as he shrouded another Eastern name, Mansur, generally known as Mansur Effendi. Included as well here are the other sacrifices of Lane for his Egyptian identity, his acquaintances, and Muhammad Ali's regime in Egypt, where he had his views about it.
