“A full time scholar has had the chance to develop a taste for” medieval biography with its medieval point of view, “but most readers would find it grotesque. … I doubt it would interest any but specialists.”

“We try to make you a man and work hard to secure your future, but you want to be a beggar.”

I replied: “A poet, not a beggar.”

She laughed at my naiveté: “And what is the real job of the Arab poets? Nothing but selling their praise poems, full of lies, to this sheikh or that governor, to this vizier or that king.”

I said: “I promise you I will not be like these people.”

This genre, which Abu-Lughod calls “literary trafficking,” is surprisingly and persistently best-selling, circulating copies in the millions.

This genre doesn’t concern us here except that it in many ways overshadows, and shapes the reception of, Arabic literature (in translation).
