"DeYoung invites us to enjoy the poetry of the neo-classical Egyptian poet, al-Barudi (1839–1904), as a herald of modern Arab sensibility, and to appreciate his societal reforms as the first independent prime minister of Egypt. Later, as an exile in Ceylon where the British consigned him for seventeen years, his poetry is shown at its best by her well-documented book and its uniquely informed vision, which will be valued for many years to come."—Issa J. Boullata, Professor Emeritus of Arabic Literature, Institute of Islamic Studies, McGill University

"A major reference source for any future research on al-Barudi, the roots of change in modern Arabic poetry, the socio-political role of the literary imagination in the modern Arab world, and the perennially charged and apropos subject of cultural encounter between the Western colonizer and its colonized Other."—Muhammad Siddiq, professor of Arabic and comparative literature, University of California, Berkeley
