Well-researched, incisive study. Jul 20, 2007
This is a well-researched, incisive study of medieval Iberian literature. Anyone interested in Arabic, Hebrew and Spanish literatures will find this study enlightening. It is one of only a handful of studies on the Iberian maqamat, and one of the only to relate the Hebrew/Arabic literature of Iberia to later Spanish literature. Shows where younger scholar working on al-Andalus are going.
