Excerpt from The Poems of Amr Son of Qamī'ah: Of the Clan of Qais Son of Tha'labah, a Branch of the Tribe of Bakr Son of Wā'il

In examining any collection of Arabic poems claiming to be ancient with reference to their authenticity, certain points have to be borne in mind. First, does the poet's language and mode of handling his subjects appear to be consistent in the several compositions, and do they agree with the account given of him by tradition? The fact that our poet was for a time estranged from his tribe is referred to in Nos. I, 5, II, 5 ff., VII, 9 ff., VIII, 4, often in identical language: notwithstanding this estrangement, however, he continues to praise his people for their prowess in war and other great qualities, chiefly their boundless generosity. The breach was healed, and in other poems he speaks of common action with them, and deeds of daring and adventure which he celebrates: so in Nos. III, V, and XI, 20 ff. All this is evidently quite consistent, both in itself and with tradition. The poet appears, in another series, as one given, in his youth, to revelry and indulgence in wine: so in Nos. IV, 2, 3, XII, XIII, 5, all of which passages agree in language and sentiment. Another phase of thought is that of reflections on old age: so in Nos. III, 8 ff., IV, I, 4, 5, V, 6 - 13, VII, 4, 5: these too are all in the same vein, and there is no difficulty in ascribing them to the same author.
