"Even for more advanced students and scholars, the poems juxtaposed to the historical context offer a useful framework for thinking about poetry and history together over a wide range of space and time."—Journal of Near Eastern Studies

"This innovative work should provoke much discussion among Arabic and Middle Eastern literature scholars."—Choice

"Provides readable and sensible essays on the poems, giving ample and illuminating attention to their backgrounds."—Speculum

"One of the most important books to have been written in the field in a very long time. . . . Farrin is not only a conscientious scholar, but also a very refined and sensitive literary critic."—James T. Monroe, editor of Hispano Arabic Poetry

"Farrin is good at reading beyond the line. He provides readable and generally sensible essays on the poems, giving ample and illuminating attention to their backgrounds. He writes in an accessible style without unnecessary jargon."
—Geert Jan van Gelder, Speculum
