The Vagaries of the Qasidah by J. E. Montgomery


A study of the tradition and practice of early Arabic poetry, this book provides an investigation of the multiple versions of early poems that exist in various AbCbasid collections. It offers a corrective to the more exaggerated claims concerning this poetry and revises some hitherto fundamental attitudes by advancing an individual philologically-driven vision of the period.
