Neens | 8 comments Hi all,

I'm looking for books similar to Calligraphies of Love by Hassan Massoudy in that I need compilations of Arabic poetry (either classical or modern) on any topic/s (not just love) with both the original Arabic text and an English translation. [I'm not sure of the Goodreads rules, but personally I'm happy to find websites that can help me find this information as well as books].

It is absolutely fine for these compilations to be an edit of select verses/lines as in the Massoudy example, rather than a print of the entire poem.

Hope I'm in the right place, if not please do redirect me!

So many thanks, GR has been an invaluable resource for me in the past, so I have high hopes!

Maybe join the above group? It's been active as recently as July.

It's not that you're in the wrong place here in this group, just that we may not have that many specialists in Arabic poetry trolling the threads here. You're more likely to get lucky in a group dedicated to Arabic literature.
