Abstract

REVIEW A NEW HISTORY OF MODERN ARABIC LITERATURE While the arrival of almost any monograph on modern Arabic literature is worthy of note, the publication of Krimskiy's comprehensive book 1 is an event of particular importance. Indeed, his is a study in a class of its own, representing much of the author's life's work. The account of how it came out posthumously, thirty years after its completion, is not the least interesting aspect of the story. Agafangel lefimovich Krimskiy (1871-1942) was one of the Russian Orientalists who survived the October Revolution and continued to be involved in research and teaching in the Soviet era. A member of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences and a scholar who engaged in both Orient- alist and Slavonic research, Krimskiy published several works in Semitics (chiefly in dialectology) and on Arab history.2 His major study, however, was the History of Modern Arabic Literature. Krimskiy worked at it, on and off, for the last thirty years of his life, but died before it could be published. After his death, the manuscript of the book fortunately escaped destruction during the war, and in 1946 found its way into the archives of the Ukrainian Academy of
