Arabic Literature in the Post-Classical Period by Roger Allen

Book Description

The final volume of The Cambridge History of Arabic Literature explores the Arabic literary heritage of the little-known period from the twelfth to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Even though it was during this time that the famous Thousand and One Nights was composed, very little has been written on the literature of the period generally. In this volume Roger Allen and Donald Richards bring together some of the most distinguished scholars in the field to rectify the situation. The volume is divided into parts with the traditions of poetry and prose covered separately within both their 'elite' and 'popular' contexts. The last two sections are devoted to drama and the indigenous tradition of literary criticism. As the only work of its kind in English covering the post-classical period, this book promises to be a unique resource for students and scholars of Arabic literature for many years to come.

We Buried the Past by Roger Allen We Buried the Past, Paperback (November 2016)

This pioneering post-colonial novel was the first break-through Moroccan novel to be written in native Moroccan Arabic. The story follows two generations of the al-Tihamis family whose members characterise distinctive aspects of Moroccan society, and whose lives reflect the profound social changes taking place during the period.

My Torturess by Roger Allen My Torturess, Paperback (May 2015)

In this harrowing novel, a young Moroccan bookseller is falsely accused of being involved in jihadist activities. Drugged and carried off the street, Hamuda is "extraordinarily rendered" to a prison camp in an unknown location where he is interrogated and subjected to various methods of torture.
