God’s Banquet: Food in Classical Arabic Literature
Geert Jan Van Gelder. Surveys the many & varied ways in which food appears in classical Arabic literature, including pre-Islamic poetry, the Koran, Islamic poetry & tales, the “Thousand & One Nights,” & popular genres such as the adab-anthologies & satires. Focusing more on dishes than foodstuffs, on concoctions rather than ingredients, van Gelder is concerned with how food is depicted, as well as how literary texts are shaped by the theme of food. Explores the connections between food & a great variety of themes central to Arabic culture. Investigates the representations of stereotypical diets to distinguish different types of people -- contrasting, for example, Sufis & Bedouins, princes & peasants, aesthetes & “women of easy virtue.”
