Description - Andalus by T. J. Gorton

The finest Moorish love poetry drawn from Medieval Andalucia, giving an elegiac flavour of a Paradise on earth, briefly found & enjoyed, only to be irretrievably lost. This collection resonates with a powerful lust for life, a desire for love and the rich enchantments of wine, laughter, moonlit picnics and bare flesh... or are these truly all spiritual metaphors? Andalus features some of the earliest poetry written, dating from a time when Al Andalus carried the torch of the Arab language, with poems composed in Spain, but recited in Marrakesh, Baghdad, Delhi and Samarkand.

Buy Andalus by T. J. Gorton from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
