Jewish Prince in Moslem Spain: Selected Poems of Samuel Ibn Nagrela

Jewish Prince in Moslem Spain: Selected Poems of Samuel Ibn Nagrela Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Translated by Leon J. Weinberger

Of all the Hebrew poets of the 'Golden Age' in Spain, Samuel Ibn Nagrela (993-1056 A.D.) remains perhaps the most fascinating personality. A leading statesman in the kingdom of Granada, he was as successful in court as on the battlefield, maintaining a position of power for several decades while walking a political tightrope. Endowed with great literary talents, he opened up new paths in Hebrew poetry, and his mastery of its metrical intricacies was as consummate as his political and military skill.

Synopsis:

The four titles listed above, published in medieval Hebrew, are funded by a grant from the American Academy for Jewish Research and distributed for the Hebrew Union College Press by The University of Alabama Press.
