This volume brings together a set of key studies on classical Arabic poetry (ca. 500-1000 C.E.), published over the last thirty-five years; the individual articles each deal with a different approach, period, genre, or theme. The major focus is on new interpretations of the form and function of the pre-eminent classical poetic genre, the polythematic qasida, or Arabic ode, particularly explorations of its ritual, ceremonial and performance dimensions. Other articles present the typology and genre characteristics of the short monothematic forms, especially the lyrical ghazal and the wine-poem. After thus setting out the full poetic genres and their structures, the volume turns in the remaining studies to the philological, rhetorical, stylistic and motival elements of classical Arabic poetry, in their etymological, symbolic, historical and comparatist dimensions. Suzanne Pinckney Stetkevych's Introduction places the articles within the context of the major critical and methodological trajectories of the field and in doing so demonstrates the increasing integration of Arabic literary studies into contemporary humanistic scholarship. The Selected Bibliography complements the Introduction and the Articles to offer the reader a full overview of the past generation of Western literary and critical scholarship on classical Arabic poetry.

Review:

'... the collection succeeds and will prove indispensable to those who would venture into this field... there is no gainsaying that usefulness and convenience of having it all in one place, not to mention the expediency of the select bibliography and index. More significant, though, is the impact of this collection: the reader is left with a sense of the immense cultural wealth of the early islamic world, an impression that stands in stark contrast to much of what is said about Islam nowadays. We would do well to remember these aspects of Arabic and Muslim cultural life more frequently. Suzanne Pinckney Stetkevych and the editors of 'The Formation of the Islamic World' have done us a great service in helping us to remember.' The Muslim World Book Review
