For the first time this book provides an examination of the impulses that went into the making of literary criticism in medieval Arab-Islamic culture. It traces the resulting characteristics of this area of intellectual enquiry and grounds the field of Arabic literary criticism in its social, intellectual and cultural context (3rd/9th century to the 5th/11th century).

Review:

"The main virtue of this study is that it asks the sources questions never asked before and I know of no comparable book that deals with the status of the pre-modern Arab critic." -- Pierre Cachia, Columbia University
