Saqt al-Zand (سقط الزند) The Falling Sparks

9789953134642: Saqt al-Zand (سقط الزند) The Falling Sparks

Abu al-'Ala composed this poetry in his youth, and called it al-zind (the forearm) because al-saqt is the dust that falls from fire at the arrow shaft. Thus his poetry was compared to fire impressed in the forearm. Each poem has a title and an occasion, and expresses the poet's opinion about people, life and death. Footnotes explain terms. Includes index.
