The 'Uddat al-jalis is an anthology of outstanding literary importance, probably the most valuable work of Arabic poetry to surface in this century. It contains the largest and best collection of Andalusian Arabic muwashshahat, 354 in all, of which over 280 are not extant in any other major source. Furthermore, no less than 29 of these poems have kharjas that are wholly or partly in Romance. (By comparison, the next most important collection, the Jays al-tawsih of Ibn al-Khatib has 111 unique poems and 16 with 'Romance kharjas'.) The 'Uddat al-jalis is therefore a key source for those interested in Arabic literature, Romance literature or comparative literature. Three of its kharjas containing Romance, two of its matla's and eleven of its Arabic kharjas are also to be found as kharjas of Hebrew muwassahat, giving it yet another dimension. Arabic text.
