Description

This edition of an anonymous work of fiction reads as a transnational literary whodunnit. How did this hybrid text, blending the Arabic genres of the popular sira and the Udhri; love story with the western fairy tale, come to life? And why was it misconstrued as history in the 19th century? Hammond offers up an intriguing case file.
