REVELRY AND REMORSE: A POEM OF AB � NUW � S It is the custom of the Journal of Arabic Literature Symposium on Classical Arabic Literature to select a poem, or poems, for the sym- posiasts to read, translate and discuss, devoting at least two full sessions of the conference to the exercise. The poets chosen for this purpose have included Abu Firas, al-Shanfara (La-mz'yyat al-'Arab), 'Umar b. Abi Rabicah, Dhu I-Rummah, Abu Nuwas and, most recently, al-Buhturi. From the third Symposium (1985) onwards, they have been chosen in conjunction with the period which marked the theme of the Symposium. This custom has proved to be most fruitful and instructive. At the 1991 convocation, a poem of Abu Nuwas was selected for the symposiasts by Professor Dr R. Jacobi of the University of Saarbrucken and Dr G.J.H. van Gelder of the University of Groningen. The choice of the poem was inspired. The discussion continued for three formal sessions and the poem was even debated during the symposiasts 'free time'. The Secretary to the Symposium, Dr J.E. Montgomery, then of the Univer- sity of Glasgow, kept 'minutes' of the formal sessions, noting down the translations offered by the participants
