The quality stamp of the translator Cola Fran zen gave me the hunch that the money spent on the book, The poems of Arab Andalusia won't be in vain. After reading it, I can endorse that this book is a gem worthy to stand on its own as an outstanding collection of ancient Arabic poetry in translation.

These outstanding poems of Muslims settled in 10th century in Spain are distinctively different from the Arabs of the Orient in its innovative form, structure and themes and stunning imagers. The discovery of the treasure of ancient Andalusian Arab poetry itself is a story of chance encounter.

It was made by a great Spanish Arabist and historian named Emilio García Gómez in the year 1928 in a shop in Cairo. The book bearing the title Al-Mubarazzin Wei Ghana al-mumayyizin (meaning 'The Banners of the Champions and the Standards of the Select Ones') was till then unedited.

In his prologue, Garcia Gómez’s only claim for his translations was that they allow us to see, even if from afar, what Arab-Adalusian poetry was like in the tenth, eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Enough, however, if the ancient saying is true, that a few verses can reveal the soul of a people better than long pages of history “.

As we shall see, Garcia Gómez was far too modest about the publication of this little book that changed the entire landscape of Spanish poetry. It not only inspired and enchanted readers and but great Spanish poets like Rafael Albert and Federico Garcia Lorna who belonged to the famous 'Generation of 27'.

The new taste of the soul of divine Andalusia through the surprisingly fresh metaphors and images contained in their poems revolutionized the entire Spanish poetry. Most critics who have looked carefully at the 'Divan' agree that Lorna did not attempt to copy the Arab- Andalusian poets, but to immerse himself in their poetry in order to reveal the soul, the essence, and recast it in his own manner.

The present English version by Cola Fran zen is drawn from the Spanish translation made by Emilio García Gómez that book opened our eyes to Andalusian past. The appeal and enduring beauty of these poems whose glow still reaches us even after being dismantled and refashioned in other languages cannot be explained but merely marveled at.

Lbn SA’d, the original compiler of the anthology of these poems from 10th century, was a poet as well as historian, and he has said in it that he wished to include only those few fragments of poems whose idea is more subtle than the West Wind, and whose language is more beautiful than a pretty face.” And Garcia Gómez tells us that indeed except for some complete divans and a few celebrated Adidas, the large part of Arab- Andalusian poetry has come down to us in fragments, shattered, although in iridescent diamond dust.” After going through a lengthy list, Garcia Gómez concludes: They were all poets !” It was said that in Silver, part of the kingdom of Seville, any laborer driving his ox cart would be capable of improvising a poem on any theme suggested to him.

High officials including Kings, Viziers and Ambassadors wrote their invitations, excuses, insults and even informal communiqués in poetry! The sang about pleasures and sorrows of their days, their love, friendship, revelry, flora and fauna, beautiful women, horses and war and last but not least about water.

I must say that Cola Fran zen’s vibrant, delicious and faithful renderings of these ancient poems are, to quote from a poet in her marvelous compilation, '”shooting stars that leap agile as acrobats.” The imagery of turning pearl into carnelian gemstone by the blush of her modesty is refreshingly original and striking.
