Abstract

AL-SARAQUST � , IBN AL-ASTARKUWI (PART II) The scenario of most of al-Maqiimät al-Luzûmïya by the Andalusi author al-Saraqusti (d. 538/1143)' is set geographically in the Middle East. A few maqdmdt take place in areas stretching from India2 and China3 in the Orient, to Qayrawan4 and TangierS5 in the Maghreb, but they are in the distinct minority. Even fewer are the pieces that refer to al-Saraqusti's Andalusi homeland.' This suggests that the author was aiming at a reader-reception 1 For an overall account of al-Saraqusti's life, times, and known works, see James T. Monroe, "Al-Saraqusti, ibn al-Aštarkuwi: Andalusi Lexicographer, Poet, and Author of al- Maqamat al-Luzumiya," JAL, 28 (1997), pp. 1-37. There are two editions of al-Maqamat al- Luzumiya, namely that of Ibrahim Badr Ahmad Dayf, al-Maq � m � t al-Luzumiya li-l-Saraqusti (Alexandria: al-Hay'a al-Misriya al- �� mma li-1-Kitab, 1982), hereafter abbreviated as D, and that of Hasan al-Waragli, al-Maq � m � t al-Luzumiya: Ta¸lif Abi l-T � hir Muhammad ibn Yusuf al-Tamimi, al-Saraqusti (Rabat: Matabi � Manšurat � Ukaz, 1995), hereafter abbreviated as W.
