إن البدو في جزيرة العرب وبلاد فارس قديماً قد جعلوا من الشعر شكل فني حواري. فنجد أن العديد من الأشكال الشعرية قد تطورت من رحم الطبيعة التشاركية للشعر القبائلي. واليوم في معظم الثقافات العربية ربما لا تزال ترى سرد للحكايات ومسابقات للشعر العفوي في الشوارع. ويعتبر فن تحويل القافية إلى سجال لفظي ماكر بمثابة علامة على الذكاء ووسام شرف لمن يتقنه. وهنا سيتعلم الطلاب حول بدايات وتركيبة الشعر العربي.

In this packet we look at works that span nearly a thousand yearsäóîfrom shortly after the foundation of Islam in the seventh century to the seventeenth century when the last two great Islamic empiresäóîthe Ottoman and the Safavidäóîhad reached their peak. Although the definition of Islamic art usually includes work made in Mughal India, it is beyond the scope of this packet. The works we will look at here come from as far west as Spain and as far east as Afghanistan.
