About the Author

Jurji Zaydan (1861-1914) was one of the most important Arab writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth-centuries. He founded Al-Hilal, the foremost cultural and literary journal in the Arab world. Zaydan is the author of two canoni-cal, multi-volume histories of Arabic literature and Islamic civilization and twenty-three historical novels. Samah Selim is an assistant professor in the Department of African, Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Literatures at Rutgers University. She is the author of The Novel and the Rural Imaginary in Egypt, 1880-1985. Her translations include The Collar and the Bracelet by Yahya Taher Abdullah, winner of the Saif Ghobsh-Banipal Prize, and Miral al-Tahawy's Brooklyn Heights.
