Arabian Poetry By W. A. Clouston

Arabian Poetry

W. A. Clouston


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 478 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1881.

Description

This is an anthology of 19th century Orientalist translations of Arabian poetry, many of which are very rare, as is this particular book. Most of the included works either predated Muhammed or were contemporary, so there are many fascinating bits of pre-Islamic lore. Included is the Moallakat, or the 'Hanged' Poems, a collection of seven pre-Islamic poets whose works were once displayed (i.e. 'hanged') in the Ka'ba. Another highlight is a synopsis of the 'Romance of Antar,' an oral saga of a brave prince of old Arabia.
