Con­trari­ness in Clas­si­cal Ara­bic Lit­er­a­ture: Beau­ti­fy­ing the Ugly and Ugli­fy­ing the Beau­ti­ful by Abū Manṣūr al-Thaʿālibī (d. 429/1038)
BuchcoverIn his Beau­ti­fy­ing the Ugly and Ugli­fy­ing the Beau­ti­ful (Taḥsīn al-qabīḥ wa-taqbīḥ al-ḥasan) the pro­lif­ic anthol­o­gist al-Thaʿālibī (d. 429/1038) offers a the­mat­i­cal­ly arranged selec­tion of Ara­bic poems and prose anec­dotes or say­ings with con­trary or para­dox­i­cal pur­port, such as praise of miser­li­ness, bore­dom, sick­ness, and death, or con­dem­na­tion of gen­eros­i­ty, intel­li­gence, youth, and music.
The book is both enter­tain­ing and infor­ma­tive, giv­ing insight in pre­mod­ern Arab and Islam­ic cul­ture. It con­tains a new edi­tion of the Ara­bic text and a com­plete Eng­lish trans­la­tion (the first in any lan­guage) with exten­sive anno­ta­tion, pre­ced­ed by an intro­duc­tion with the nec­es­sary back­ground of the genre.

It will serve to shed light on the under­stand­ing of how Chi­nese peo­ple mon­i­tor their speech in the course of com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and will func­tion as an impor­tant ref­er­ence for researchers and stu­dents who con­duct cross-lin­guis­tic com­par­a­tive or con­trastive metaprag­mat­ic research con­cern­ing Chi­nese and oth­er lan­guages.
