Learning Objectives

This course provides an overview of Arabic literature from its origins to the early Abbasid period. About two thirds of the class time will be devoted to the first known texts of literary production in Arabic (pre-Islamic odes and the Qur'an), with particular attention to the problems involving their oral and written transmission. The remainder of the course will instead illustrate the flowering of literature as caused by the impact of the Qur'anic revelation and the cultural influence exerted by the political expansion of the Caliphate.

Program

. Qur'an
. Pre-Islamic poetry
. Words and deeds of the Prophet (hadîth), Qur'anic commentaries (tafsîr), earliest historiography
. Poetry of the Umayyad era
