Written in various languages, on multiple continents, and over many centuries, Islamic literature encompasses a rich and varied body of texts. While mention is made of key historical and religious works, this volume focuses on poetry and literary prose, whether popular or courtly in inspiration. Topics covered include dominant genres, recurring patterns in imagery, the influence of pre-Islamic Arabian literature, and the periods of development that Islamic literature passed through from the seventh century CE to the present day. This insightful and wide-ranging overview introduces readers to authors such as Yunus Emre, Rumi, Ḥafez, and Fuzuli of Baghdad. An invaluable resource!
