Al-Mutanabbi (AD 915 965), though universally considered the
greatest of all the Arab poets, has seldom been translated or
discussed outside Arab countries. This study uses the same format
as and is intended to supplement Professor Arberry's Arabic Poetry:
A Primer for Students. The introduction discusses Al-Mutanabbi's
life, style, influence and critics. There follows a selection from
his poems, in the original Arabic, with a literal translation into
English on the facing page and notes on points of language and
style at the foot. There is also a concluding chapter on textual
variants, the problems of translation and a bibliography. Students
of Arabic will find this a convenient introduction to one of the
classics of the literature.
