Editorial Reviews

Review

“Ali provides a compelling analysis of the role Arabic literary salons played in developing historical narrative and interpreting tradition in the Islamic Middle Ages. The author approaches key literary texts of the Abbasid period as dynamic rhetorical articulations rotated and rehearsed in the salons. Advanced scholars will benefit from Ali’s interdisciplinary approach and from his refreshing reading of al-Buhturi’s poems.” —Choice
