This book provides a classic general introduction to Arabic literary history. Nicholson aims to cover "what the Arabs thought and to indicate as far as possible the influences which moulded their thought". Most Arabic books abound in allusions to names, events, movements and ideas which puzzle Western readers. This book hopes to provide the answers to those puzzles.
