Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Assuming no previous knowledge of the subject, this book gives a rounded and balanced view of Arab literary creativity. 'High' literature is examined alongside popular folk literature, and the classical and modern periods, usually treated separately, are presented together. Cachia's observations are not subordinated to any pre-formed literary theory, but describe and illustrate the directions taken, in order to present an overall picture of the field of relevance to the student of literature as well as to Arabists working in related fields.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-184) and index.
