Description

Di‘bil b. ‘Alī (765–860) was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the best satirists in the school of Arabic poets which flourished during the early ‘Abbāsid age. Leon Zolondek has collected, translated, and annotated 229 fragments of Di‘bil’s verse and has assembled materials for a reconstruction of his long-lost yet widely quoted Book of the Poets. Arabic texts of the poems and of the citations of Book of the Poets are included.

Leon Zolondek is an associate professor of Semitic languages and literatures at the University of Kentucky.
