Sinopsis:

This text examines the importance of masculine homosexual allusion in classical Arabic literature. It explores the underlying meanings of masculine motifs in classical texts. The fawn, for example, was often a symbol for the ethereally beautiful male youth, while the stallion represented masculine bravery and valour. For the most part such symbols do not represent homosexual intention, but are a reflection of sublime erotic ideals intertwined with religious beliefs. This text does not so much locate homosexuality in Arabic literature as it explores the use of male motifs, masculine allusion and phallic symbols as expressions of meanings that have often been misinterpreted throughout the centuries. It also connects Arabic literature with political conventions, social mores and theology.

About the Author:

J. W. Wright, Jr. is a Fulbright Scholar in Jordan and the author of numerous articles on Arabic literature and the Middle East. Everett K. Rowoson is associate professor of Arabic and director of the Middle East Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
