    This anthology comprises more than 180 selections from the finest poetry and prose by Arab writers of the last 1,500 years, in English translations illustrating the spectrum of approaches used since the 17th century. In addition to the Qu'ran and such classic authors as al-Mutanabbi, it features works which were composed by Christian and Jewish writers from the Arab world or which illustrate Arabic literature's connections with other literary traditions of South Asia and Western Europe.
