Mirrors for princes form a substantial and important genre in many pre-modern literatures. Their ostensible purpose is to advise the king; at the same time they assert that the king, if he is truly virtuous, will appreciate being reminded of the contingency of his power. The unknown author of the Counsel for Kings studied in this book wrote in a distinctive early tenth-century Iranian environment. He deploys an abundant set of cultural materials representing 'perennial wisdom' of mixed provenances, which he reinvigorates by applying them to the circumstances of his own time and place.

The first volume situates Counsel for Kings in its historical context. The second volume gives direct access to a substantial portion of the text through translation and commentary.

About the series: Edinburgh Studies in Classical Arabic Literature provides new insights into classical Arabic literature in light of state of the art cultural and literary theory, including theories of gender, empire, textuality, reader response, performance, narrative and semiotics.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a textual and contextual study of an early Arabic mirror for princes. Mirrors for princes offer advice to rulers on the ethical and practical aspects of statecraft. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach to an early Arabic mirror, the Counsel for Kings of Pseudo Mawardi, this study evokes the mentality of the distinctive environment - the border region of eastern Iran - in which, it is argued, the text originated. Exploring the Counsel for Kings as the product of a specific cultural milieu at a particular historical moment, as a substantial and influential work of Arabic literature, and as a critical commentary on the political and social conditions of the author s time, this book restores this multi faceted mirror for princes to history. The first volume in this two part study covers the literary, cultural, political and historical contexts and their confluence in Pseudo Mawardi s Nasihat al muluk. The second volume gives direct access to a substantial portion of the text through translation and commentary. Seller Inventory # AA79780748696987
