ANTHOLOGY OF ISLAMIC LITERATURE: From the Rise of Islam to Modern Times

A collection of nearly fifty renderings from the Arabic and Persian, divided according to conventional historical periods, with background information for each supplied by the editor. The range is from proverbs to poets, scripture to story-telling. A good supplement to comparative literature courses and something different for the exploratory reader.
