9780300104936: Anthology of Arabic Literature, Culture, and Thought from Pre-Islamic Times to the Present

This book—the first comprehensive reader of Arabic literature from pre-Islamic times to the present—is an essential work for advanced students of the Arabic language. Presenting seventy works by seventy authors, it includes:

· pre-Islamic poetry and prose;
· selections from the Qur’an;
· the Prophet Muhammad’s last sermon;
· the powerful writing of Ali Ibn Abi Talib, the fourth Islamic Caliph;
· writings from the “Golden Age of the Arabs” (750-1258 A.D.) in philosophy, mysticism, prose, and poetry;
· works from the neoclassical, modernist, and metaphorical schools;
· literature of the Arabs in Andalus, Spain;
· discussions of cultural, literary, critical, and political movements of the present day;
· vocabulary lists, a list of idioms and notes, a set of questions about the text, and two glossaries.

This book not only introduces students to the entire sweep of Arabic intellectual, political, and cultural thought but also gives examples of how this thought is expressed, offering important insight into the Arab mind.

(Roger Allen)

"This comprehensive reader of Arabic literature is a carefully thought out and well-organized collection of the best of Arabic writing, the first of its kind created with the student in mind and will deliver an in-depth understanding of Arabic writings from the earliest days until the present. . . . This text should serve the educator of Arabic and its literature well by offering a basic knowledge of Arabic literature, a unique accomplishment which should not go unappreciated by students. . . . A wonderful resource which greatly facilitates assigning readings in Arabic literature. This anthology is a welcome addition to the Arabic curriculum and is long overdue.”—NECTFL Review
