Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Looking Back at al-Andalus contains the table of contents, and acknowledgments. The book focuses on the imaginative reconstruction of the lost place of al-Andalus that navigates between traditional generic literary formulations and actual losses. In looking back to the past, Andalusī writers, living either in al-Andalus or nearby expressed a nostalgic yearning for a lost time and place that is itself defined through remembering and writing. The book examines a selection of ‘pieces’ of al-Andalus, and the ways in which Andalusī writers— created and defined an Andalus according to their own choice of literary genre and the conventions associated with that genre.

Keywords: al-Andalus; literary genre
