Item description for Yusuf al-Shirbini's Kitab Hazz al-Quhuf bi-Sharh Qasid Abi Shaduf (Brains Confounded by the Ode of Abu Shaduf Expounded) Vol. 1: Arabic Text (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta) by Humphrey T. Davies, Nelly Hanna, Yusuf Ibn Muhammad Shirbini, Humphrey T. Davies, Klaas Krab, Paul Collier & Jon Buller...

The work, written in 1686 or soon after, takes the form of a lengthy introduction to and commentary on a poem supposedly composed by an Egyptian peasant in which the latter describes the ill times on which he has fallen and lists the dishes he dreams of eating. This format allows the author both to attack rural society (which he divides into peasants, jurisprudents (fuqaha'), and Sufis (fuqara')) and to play for comic effect with the conventions of the then central text-and-commentary genre. In so doing, he not only provides important information on rural Lower Egypt during an understudied period but reveals many of the concerns of the educated vis--vis the masses, whether rural or urban. The work also contains the longest passages of colloquial Egyptian known from before the nineteenth century. It will interest students of Arabic literature, Ottoman Egyptian culture, the socio-economic and intellectual history of Egypt, rural-urban relations in Egypt, and Arabic linguistics.
