4.0 out of 5 stars Does not contain the Arabic texts apart from snippets at the start, 18 July 2014
This review is from: Classical Arabic Literature: A Library of Arabic Literature Anthology (Paperback)
Classical Arabic Literature,a library of Arabi literature anthology
ISBN 9789814738269

This is probably worth 5 stars after a brief perusal but, for me, it would have been far more useful if the original Arabic texts were included. As it stands, I will have to return it and look for another billingual Arabic reader at intermediate/advanced level.

A lost opportunity.

Hi Mohammed. I just thought I'd let you know that the other books in our Library of Arabic Literature series will all include the Arabic, and rather beautifully laid out even if I say so myself (I typeset them). This book was intended as a taster and a sample for readers who might not be Arabic speakers, to show the breadth and diversity of literature in the Arab world. All the remaining books will include entire works in the Arabic with an English translation, presented as facing-page parallel texts.

Thanks for your kind review though, and I do hope you enjoy some of the other books in the series.
