Christopher Middleton, Leticia Garza-Falcón
D.R. Godine, Publisher, 1993 - Poetry - 86 pages
This stunning collection of poems opens up an entire world: the rich, virile, and highly literate Moslem culture of medieval Spain. This pioneering volume spans the full range of poetic emotion and enterprise, making this lost world of a millennium ago marvellously tangible, vivid and palpable. It pays special attention to the female poets, and to the evolution and meaning of the verse structures and songforms. This is a work of scholarly importance as well as a straightforward poetic pleasure.
