Thanks to Laila Lalami, just discovered a very cool little web site, set up by Princeton University, that displays recordings and texts of five classic Arab poems, with very handy translations popping up alongside. Check it out.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
The Arabist is a labor of love. We don't make much from ads, so please contribute to keep us going.
