Description
Exploring the important linkage between food and literature in Arabic culture Van Gelder (Arabic, U. of Oxford) examines a variety ofclassical Arabic texts, tracing the ways that discussions of food arise in pieces such as the Koran, pre-Islamic poetry, and the Thousand and one Nights. He argues that food may act as a marker for many different things, including time, place, gender, character, or religion, and can be a metaphor, symbol, or allusion.
