- We can order this
The book provides a comparative study of the English and French translations of the Mu`allaqat with a focus on a number of communicative priorities in the source text, based on stylistic devices that require a sound awareness of the culture of pre-Islamic Arabia, the main setting of the Mu`allaqat.
The author assesses the reliability of the criteria of evaluation and the translatability of the Mu`allaqat as a text that is remote from its translators in time, in place, and with respect to literary tradition.
