Item Description...
This companion provides information on the lives and works of about 150 authors who write primarily in Arabic, covering the first known works of Arabic literature in the 5th and 6th centuries A.D. to the present day. While concentrating on literary authors, writers from the fields of history, geography, and philosophy are also represented. The individuals represented were chosen primarily from the Encyclopedia of Arabic Literature. Among the major authors are Najib Mahfuz, the 1988 Nobel laureate; Nawal Saadawi, the Egyptian physician who is the leading female literary author in the Arab world and the most frequently translated into English; Abu al-Ala' al-Ma'arri, the 11th century poet whose verses are taught to every Arab schoolchild; and Avicenna, the great physician and philosopher, transmitter and interpreter of Aristotle, whose work on medicine was long the standard not only in the Middle East but also (in Latin translation) in Europe. In addition, entries will be included for the anonymous romances so common in Arabic literature, such as The Arabian nights, a cycle of stories perhaps even better known in the West than in the Arab world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Offering online resources for 150 Arab writers   Jan 5, 2005
The Undergraduate's Companion To Arab Writers And Their Web Sites is an informed and informative, and thoroughly "user friendly" reference for the modern digital age. Offering online resources for 150 Arab writers and their works, from the first known works of Arabic literature dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries A.D. to the present day and writings from fields of history, geography, and philosophy as well as literature, The Undergraduate's Companion To Arab Writers And Their Web Sites is astutely organized and sensibly presented. Each individual website is listed with information on translations, a summary of the site's contents, and a contemporary date (most of the sites were successfully accessed in August 2003). An index and an alphabetical list of authors simplifies the task of searching for works by a specific individual. An invaluable tool and highly recommended resource for quickly locating information of and literature by Arab writers.
