The work overall aims to give a balanced account of the subject, reflecting the different pace of literary development in diverse parts of the Arab world, including North Africa. Key Features *A concise introduction to a field that deserves to be better known in the West. *Clear presentation, based on extensive classroom experience of teaching the subject. *Guidance on other sources of further information. *Extensive bibliography, with list of works in English translation.
