Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of poems from Moses ben Abraham Darʿī's Hebrew collections. The corpus is indeed characterized by "the relative clarity of Moses ben Abraham Darʿī Hebrew and the absence of the linguistic gymnastics, which so often characterizes medieval Hebrew poetry". Hence, rather than opting for English translations of all the compositions in the corpus, every Hebrew poem in the book comes with a commentary section consisting of English essays (including in some instances the poem's paraphrase or English translations of poetical fragments) and bilingual (Hebrew/English) line-by-line annotations referring to biblical quotations and allusions.

Keywords: linguistic gymnastics; medieval Hebrew poetry; Moses ben Abraham Darʿī
