The (European) Other in Medieval Arabic Literature and Culture: Ninth-Twelfth Century AD (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Contrary to the monolithic impression left by postcolonial theories of Orientalism, the book makes the case that Orientals did not exist solely to be gazed at. Exploring a cross-section of 9th through 12th centuries, non-religious Arabic prose and poetic texts such as the geo-cosmographical literature, recits de voyages, diplomatic memoirs, captivity narratives, pre-Crusade and Crusade poetry, Nizar F. Hermes shows that there was no shortage of medieval Muslims who cast curious eyes and minds towards the "European Other" and that more than a handful of them were textually and physically interested in Europe.
