The Literary Heritage of the Arabs: An Anthology

by

The Literary Heritage of the Arabs: An Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The breadth of Arabic literature produced by Arab writers from pre-Islamic times to the contemporary period reveals a world of thought and feeling largely unseen and unheard in the English-speaking world. In this wide-ranging and unique anthology, works by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim authors show the genius of Arab civilization through the prism of literature.

Through odes (or Muallaqat); selections from the Quran; samples of Hadith and the poetry of rivalry, love, adventure, and mystic transcendence; and prose conveying scientific innovation, philosophical inquiry, theological disputation, and historical analysis, this extraordinary collection provides an authoritative overview of Arabic literature.

Synopsis:

A landmark anthology of the finest literature produced by Arab writers, published in two volumes, from the past 1,500 years.
