Books Info:

Making the Great Book of Songs free pdf This is the first systematic literary study of one of the masterpieces of classical Arabic literature, the 4/10th century Kit?b al-agh?n? ( The Book of Songs ) by Ab= I-Faraj al-Isbah?n?. Until now the 24-volume Book of Songs has been regarded as a rather chaotic but priceless mine of information about classical Arabic music, literature and culture. This book approaches it as a work of literature in its own right, with its own internal logic and coherence. The study also consistently integrates the musical component into the analysis and proposes a reading of the work in which individual anecdotes and poems are related to the wider context, enhancing their meaning.
