Though there have been many studies on the Qur’aninfo-icon’s importance in tafsīr (Qur’anic commentary), there are comparatively few which look at the reception of the Qur’an in other forms of literature. This volume seeks to rectify the gap in the scholarship by placing the Qur’an in its broader cultural and literary contexts. It explores the relation of Arabic (and Persian) classical literary traditions (adabinfo-icon) to the Qur’an from pre-Islamic times until the fifteenth century CE, focusing on the various ways in which the classical literati (udabāʾ) engaged with the Qur’anic text, linguistically, conceptually, structurally and aesthetically, to create works that combined the sacred with the profane, thereby blurring the boundaries between formal tafsīr and adab.
