Course Name: Arabic Rhetoric II
This course surveys the vast field of Arabic rhetoric. Contemporary authors ʿAlī al-Jārim and Muṣṭafā Amīn present rhetorical concepts within each of the three branches of Arabic rhetoric, al-maʿānī, al-bayān, and al-badīʿ, in a methodical and coherent way. Each chapter begins with examples of rhetorical concepts followed by a detailed explanation (al-baḥth) and rules (al-qawāʾid). Thereafter, the text gives an opportunity to practice each concept through an array of different exercises utilizing poetry from different genres as well Qurʾānic verses and hadith.
