Chapter Summary

In 1248, the city of Seville falls to the Christians marking the effective end of Muslim hegemony in the Iberian Peninsula. Although the Naṣrid kingdom of Granada will hold out for another two and a half centuries before falling to the Castilians Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492, by the mid-thirteenth century al-Andalus had ceased to exist as a viable political entity. All of the writers treated in this study lived during transitional moments in Andalusī history that could easily be described as cultural upheavals, most notably the decline in status of the Arab litterateur. Moreover, their choices of genre reflect and express these ruptures. Each genre consists of discourses, styles, and fields of imagery that in themselves carry meaning.

Keywords: al-Andalus; Andalusī; Naṣrid kingdom
