Making the Great Book of Songs: Compilation and the Author's Craft in Abū I-Faraj al-Isbahānī's Kitāb al-aghānī
Routledge, 02.09.2003 - 448 Seiten
This is the first systematic literary study of one of the masterpieces of classical Arabic literature, the fourth/tenth century Kitāb al-aghānī (The Book of Songs) by Abū I-Faraj al-Isbahānī. Until now the twenty-four volume Book of Songs has been regarded as a rather chaotic but priceless mine of information about classical Arabic music, literature and culture. This book approaches it as a work of literature in its own right, with its own internal logic and coherence. The study also consistently integrates the musical component into the analysis and proposes a reading of the work in which individual anecdotes and poems are related to the wider context, enhancing their meaning.
