About the Authors
  • The Cambridge History of Arabic Literature: The Literature of Al-Andalus explores the culture of Iberia from the eighth to the thirteenth century, and to the centuries following the Christian conquest, when Arabic continued to be used. While the focus is on literature, the study extends to the related fields of philosophy, art, architecture and music. Edited by an Arabist, a Hebraist and a Romance scholar, with individual chapters by a team of the world's leading experts in the field, this is a truly interdisciplinary and comparative work offering a radical new approach.

    • Broad-ranging chronologically, this is the only reference volume available on the literature of the al-Andalus
    • Innovative approach which incorporates literature with other cultures and placing it within the context of comparative cultures and literatures
    • The editors are extremely well known in the literary world and have compiled an accessible and unusual volume
