9780521017404: The Arabian Epic: Volume 3, Texts: Heroic and Oral Story-telling (University of Cambridge Oriental Publications)

The hero cycles of Arabic belong to the literary tradition of The Arabian Nights and can be seen as the popular epics of their civilisation. The Arabian epic covers ten of the main representatives of this genre. Each of these has been developed through the processes of accretive oral story-telling by means of an accumulation of narrative and folklore motifs, many of which belong to what can be seen as a universal tradition. The work is published in three volumes. The first volume introduces the background and the dimensions in which the cycles are set, while the second volume analyses their contents and the literary formulae used in their construction, as well as listing analogues found in other literatures. The epitomes surveyed in the final volume provide non-Arabists with a more immediate insight into the contents of the cycles, drawing attention to their narrative colouring and texture.

Book Description:

The hero cycles of Arabic belong to the literary tradition of The Arabian Nights and can be seen as the popular epics of their civilisation. Published in three volumes, the first introduces the background to the cycles, while the second analyses their contents and literary formulae. The epitomes surveyed in the final volume provide further insight into their literary nuances.

Review:

..".gives detailed plot summaries of a dozen major epic cycles. This volume will be most useful for non-Arabists seeking some general knowledge of the content of these established cycles; there is enough detail to whet the appetite." Stephen Belcher, Religious Studies Review
