Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference books and articles relevant to the pens, swords, and the springs of art. Arabic poetry duels, then, occur both orally and in writing, and have been appropriate to a variety of social and literary contexts. The poetry is for the most part a rural phenomenon, and is performed by and for men, although increasingly one finds it performed at folk festivals, rallies, and other gatherings that may include women as well. Performances of Palestinian poetry duels are aesthetically and culturally rich events.

Keywords: Arabic poetry duels; Palestinian poetry duels
