A library of arabic literature anthology on jstor

A major achievement in the field of translation, this anthology presents a rich assortment of classical Arabic poems và literary prose, from pre-Islamic times until the 18th century, with short introductions to lớn guide non-speciacác mục students and informative sầu endnotes và bibliography for advanced scholars. Like many pre-modern Arabic anthologies it aims at being both entertaining và informative. It ranges from the early Bedouin poems with their evocation of desert life to lớn refined urban lyrical verse, from tender love poetry to lớn sonorous eulogy or vicious lampoons, & from the heights of mystical rapture to lớn the frivolity of comic verse. The prose contains anecdotes, entertaining or edifying tales & parables, a fairy-tale, a bawdy story, samples of literary criticism, & much more.
With this anthology, distinguished Arabist Geert Jan van Gelder brings together well-known texts as well as less familiar pieces that will be new even lớn scholars in the field. Many recent studies and anthologies of Middle Eastern literatures are primarily interested in Islam and religious matters—an emphasis that leads to lớn the common misconception that almost everything in the region was and is dominated by religion. Classical Arabic Literature instead brings to life the rich variety of pre-modern Arabic social and cultural life, where secular texts happily coexisted with religious ones. This masterful anthology, in English only, will introduce this vibrant literary heritage lớn a wide spectrum of new readers.
