Description - The Ghaznavid and Seljuk Turks by G. E. Tetley

Panegyrists of two Turkish dynasties, the Ghaznavids and the Seljuks, ruled much of Afghanistan, Iran and central Asia in the eleventh and twelfth centuries C.E. The first English language study of Mu'izzi, G.E. Tetley presents a new viewpoint on understanding the great Ghaznavid and Seljuk dynasties. Playing particular attention to the relationships between the panegyric poetry of the Farrukhi Sistani and Mu'izzi, a royal poet of Ghaznavids and a nomadic Seljuk respectively, this book details accounts the lives of and their role within the ruling dynasties, and the relations between Persians and Turks. A solid and impressive work of scholarship, "The Ghaznavid and Seljuk Turks" presents much new material concerning little-studied poets and will of interest to comparatists and to scholars in Oriental Studies, Medieval literature and history.
