​About The Book

The breadth of Arabic literature produced by Arab writers from pre-Islamic times to the contemporary period reveals a world of thought and feeling largely unseen and unheard in the English-speaking world. In this wide-ranging and unique anthology, works by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim authors show the genius of Arab civilization through the prism of literature.

  • Through odes (or Mu'allaqat)
  • Selections from the Qur’an
  • samples of Hadith and
  • The poetry of rivalry, love, adventure, and mystic transcendence;
  • Prose conveying scientific innovation, philosophical inquiry, theological disputation, and historical analysis.

Extraordinary collection provides an authoritative overview of Arabic literature.
