Development Of Tropes In Arabic Wine Poetry Up To The 12th Century Ad (eBook)
de Nader Masarwah
Sobre o livro
This book explores the theory of the evolution of poetic imagery as developed by Joseph Sadan, showing how metaphors were taken over by one poet from another on the basis of existing stores of imagery. It follows the development of the wine imagery used by poets from pre-Islamic times until the days of Abo Nuwas. It deals with how metaphors, especially those used to describe the vessels associated with wine, such as jugs, cups, wine skins and others, evolved over time, and how poets took the imagery used by their predecessors and built on them to create new metaphors.
