IBN ZAYDUN PDF

I knew, from my studies in Damascus, that it pays tribute to a great Moorish poet and the Princess, also a poetess, whom he loved. It was Saint Valentine's day, a bright winter morning. I pretended not to know what the statue represented and, just to see what he would say, asked the young waiter if he did, as if I were any other tourist. The love story of the poet Ibn Zaydun and his beautiful, courageous Princess is still alive in the hearts of the people of Cordoba, the capital of Moorish Spain and of the Ummeyad Caliphs. But where I was born, Syria, their poems are studied in every high school student's Arabic literature class. When Cordoba was the greatest and most sophisticated city, not only of the Moorish civilization but also the entire known world, the Princess Wallada born in and died in achieved fame for her court of learning, many centuries before France's legendary Madame de Rambouillet held sway over her literary salon.

This paper will examine the poetry of Ibn Zaydun d. Ibn Zaydun lived during a turbulent period of the history of the Arab presence in the Iberian Peninsula, following the civil war that erupted in the early 11th century, which led to the fragmentation of the central Umayyad authority and the rise of various petty kings with smaller kingdoms throughout Andalusia. While Ibn Zaydun is famous for ghazal love poetry , particularly to his beloved Walladah bint al-Mustakfi, my intention is to examine his most important poem, the nuniyyah that he composed to Walladah, not only as an expression of love to Walladah, but also as an expression of nostalgia, specifically to the Umayyad Caliphate, which epitomized stability, and which, ironically, Ibn Zaydun had an active role in ending.

I would like to argue, then, that his famous nuniyyah, described by some critics as the most famous love poem in Arabic poetry, while directed to Walladah and primarily read as an expression of love, is not simply and only about love for Walladah. To that end, I will read Ibn Zaydun nuniyyah as symbolic of a larger and more profound loss. This conclusion is consistent with Ibn Zaydun own life journey, particularly his own feelings of isolation from his beloved city Cordova. The study will examine the anecdotes surrounding the relationship between Ibn Zaydun and Walldah, particularly the ones appearing in the al-Dhakhirah and the Ibn Khaqans Qalaid al-Iqyan.

Ibn Zayd┼źn

He grew up during the decline of the Umayyad caliphate and was involved in the political life of his age. He joined the court of the Jahwarid Abu al-Hazm of cordoba and was imprisoned by him after he was accused of conspiring against him and his patrons. His relationship with the Umayyad princess Wallada was quickly terminated by Wallada herself. Some attributed this change of heart to Ibn Zaydun's early anti-Umayyad activities, while others mention his rivalry with the rich minister Ibn Abdus, a former friend of Ibn Zaydun, who supposedly gains Wallada's favor and supported her.
