The narrative works of Khodair have exceeded the limits of a single rigid literary genre. His short stories were open to various forms of expression that are related to narrative texts, such as poetry, legend, novels, heritage tales; while touching the aesthetic side of fine arts. He used narration in a very condensed way laced with gestures, symbols and connotations while maintaining the unity of the text.
