Abstract

INTRODUCTION This special, double issue of the Journal of Arabic Literature includes ten articles dealing with various aspects of Andalus literature. Insofar as poetry is concerned, the articles discuss key Classical Arabic masterpieces by al- SharÂf al-ÞalÂq (d. ca. 400/1009), Ibn Darr¨j al-Qasßall (d. 421/1030), Ibn Zaydân (394/1003-463/ 1071), and Ibn Khaf¨ja (450/1058-533/ 1139), plus one AndalusÂ-Arabic composition by Ibn Quzm¨n ( ca. 470/1078-555/ 1160). Prose is represented by three articles that explore various dimensions of the Maq¨m¨t al-luzâmiyya by al-Saraqusß (d. 538/1143). These include a study of that authorÕs innovations and original contributions to the maq¨ma genre, an essay on the literary effect produced by the fact that the maq¨ma was composed as a performance, and an article comparing the SaraqusßÂan fig- ure of the procuress with her putative Spanish congeneric sisters.
