♥ Book Title : A Reader of Classical Arabic Literature
☯ Full Synopsis : "A Reader of Classical Arabic Literature is one of a very small group of resources in English for the teaching of intermediate and advanced level classical Arabic. Based on his lecture notes, the late Seeger Bonebakker designed a superb teaching text, which he then asked his UCLA colleague, Michael Fishbein, to help him annotate and augment. The result is a truly valuable reader, one used widely in the United States and Europe, featuring judicious and instructive selections from such works as Ibn al-Qifti's Inbah al-ruwat, al-Tanukhi's al-Faraj ba'd al-shidda, and al-Dhahabi's Siyar a'lam al-nubala', among others."Article| S.

♥ Book Title : _______ ________
☯ Full Synopsis : "A major achievement in the field of translation, this anthology presents a rich assortment of classical Arabic poems and literary prose, from pre-Islamic times until the 18th century, with short introductions to guide non-specialist students and informative endnotes and bibliography for advanced scholars. Like many pre-modern Arabic anthologies it aims at being both entertaining and informative. It ranges from the early Bedouin poems with their evocation of desert life to refined urban lyrical verse, from tender love poetry to sonorous eulogy or vicious lampoons, and from the heights of mystical rapture to the frivolity of comic verse. The prose contains anecdotes, entertaining or edifying tales and parables, a fairy-tale, a bawdy story, samples of literary criticism, and 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 to 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 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 to a wide spectrum of new readers."Article| G. J. H. van Gelder| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Love and Sexuality in Modern Arabic Literature
☯ Full Synopsis : "In segregated, conservative societies with a repressive attitude to women, writings on the theme of love and sexuality are of particular interest. Among the many studies on modern Arabic literature, this book is the first major treatment of what has generally been a taboo subject. The scope covers the entire history of modern Arabic literature--poetry, the novel and the short story--from the late nineteenth century to the end of the 1980s. Examples are drawn from countries as diverse as Algeria and Kuwait. Although the main accent is on the prose of Egypt and the countries of the Mashreq, North African literature is also included. Topics range from 'erotic awareness in the early Egyptian short story' to 'death and desire in Iraqi war literature', from 'fathers and husbands as tyrants and victims' to 'the foreign woman in the North African novel'. The writers whose works are analysed include Tawfiq al-Hakim, Jabra Ibrahim Jabra, Adonis, Layla Ba'albakki, Najib Mahfouz, Edwar al-Kharrat, Layla al-'Uthman and Nizar Qabbani. Each of the nineteen contributors to the book is a specialist in his or her field of modern Arabic literature."Article| Roger M. A. Allen, Hilary Kilpatrick, Ed. C. M. de Moor| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Modern Arabic Literary Language
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Modern Arabic Literary Language is a thoughtful examination of the changes that the Arabic language has undergone in its transition from its roots in classical Arabic to a language able to meet the demands of twentieth-century life. In this volume a respected and masterful scholar of the Arabic language Jaroslav Stetkevych notes the ways that new words have been incorporated into the language, ranging from deriving new terms from existing roots (for example, the word for "newspaper" derives from the word meaning "sheet to write on") to downright assimilation of foreign words. Also noting the changes in grammar and semantics, Stetkevych illustrates how literary Arabic has become a more flexible language. Originally published in 1970, this volume is a clear assessment of lexical and stylistic developments in Modern Literary Arabic. This classic book is an important resource for scholars and advanced students of Arabic language and linguistics who wish to study the complexities of language change and lexical expansion."Article| Jaroslav Stetkevych| Statement ..."
