Love’s Grammar


Mon Dec 12 2022 at 06:30 pm


NYUAD Institute | Abu Dhabi, AZ

Yasmine Seale will present The Dove’s Necklace, a fascinating text on the nature of love from 11th-century Cordoba, and read from her translation in progress. A masterpiece of Arabic prose and poetry, a jewel of observation and a window on the intimate life of Muslim Spain, The Dove’s Necklace was composed by the young Ibn Hazm before he became the towering jurist and theologian we know today. Though he later renounced the work, it was to have a deep and lasting influence on the literature of courtly love.
Yasmine Seale, Writer and Translator
In collaboration with The Library of Arabic Literature
