Arab women poets have been around since the earliest of
times, yet their diwans (collected poems) were not given the
same consideration as their male counterparts.

Spanning 7,000 years, from the pre-Islamic to the Andalusian
periods, Classical Poems by Arab Women presents rarely seen
work by over fifty women writers for the first time. From the
sorrowful eulogies of Khansa to the gleeful scorn of Wallada
bint al-Mustakfi, this collection exclusively features the work of
Arab women who boldly refused to be silenced. The poems are
excursions into their vibrant world whose humanity has been
suppressed for centuries by religious and political bigotry.

With poems in both English and Arabic, this remarkable
anthology celebrates feminine wit and desire, and shows the
significant contribution Arab women made to the literary
about the editor tradition.
