9780595376919: Carousing with Gazelles: Homoerotic Songs of Old Baghdad

Carousing with Gazelles presents accurate and unbowdlerized translations of some of Abu Nuwas's most celebrated poems-which have mostly remained untranslated into English due to the pressures of pious Puritanism and homophobia. In fact, Abu Nuwas remains largely untranslated into ANY European language, for the same reason: he is, by European standards, shocking. More than that, there are many who consider him the greatest poet who ever wrote in Arabic.

About the Author:

Jaafar Abu Tarab has travelled widely in Arab lands and has studied Arabic in Cairo. He has long wanted to translate the poetry of Abu Nuwas, or to see it translated into English. This book is his attempt to actually produce the first scholarly and accurate English translations of Abu Nuwas, and to encourage others to produce more.
