Item Description: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Makamat or Rhetorical Anecdotes: Of Al Hariri of Basra Nothing is to be found corresponding with those bold and sublime efforts of English poesy, which, as if fearing to be hampered by the trammels of rhyme, have arrayed themselves in the plain but majestic attire of blank verse. An Eastern poet who should neglect to assume the elaborate ornaments of style prescribed by established custom, would at once be condemned unheard, on the score of indolence or incapacity. For such negligence no excel lence of ideas could atone in the eyes of his countrymen. if his conceptions are fine, they would say, why does he not make the exertion requisite to produce them in a more worthy and elegant form.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Makamat or Rhetorical Anecdotes: Of Al Hariri of Basra The work of Hariri which is the subject of the following pages has been denominated the most classical in Arabic literature, and a master-piece of elegance and refinement. Nor are these appellations unmerited. In elaborate execution and ornateness of style the Makamat are perhaps unrivalled; they have always been regarded in the East as models of accuracy; and the design with which they were written was purely literary, namely, to display the vast resources of the Arabic language, to exemplify the most difficult methods of composition, and to embody in a series of rhythmical and metrical anecdotes all the refinements of grammar, rhetoric, poetry, history, and tradition, that the authors extensive learning could supply. To this design the subject-matter of the work is entirely subordinate, the characters and incidents being selected not for their intrinsic interest or value, but merely as forming a suitable occasion and groundwork for the exhibition of recondite learning and rhetorical skill.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Makamat or Rhetorical Anecdotes: Of Al Hariri of Basra Nothing is to be found corresponding with those bold and sublime efforts of English poesy, which, as if fearing to be hampered by the trammels of rhyme, have arrayed themselves in the plain but majestic attire of blank verse. An Eastern poet who should neglect to assume the elaborate ornaments of style prescribed by established custom, would at once be condemned unheard, on the score of indolence or incapacity. For such negligence no excel lence of ideas could atone in the eyes of his countrymen. if his conceptions are fine, they would say, why does he not make the exertion requisite to produce them in a more worthy and elegant form.
