There remaining a few pockets of resistence to overwhelming evidence in favour of the Eastern Arabic ultimate background of the meters and metrics of Andalusi Stanzaic poetry, it behooves impartial scholarship to deal with alternative arguments eventually raised by those still defending the Hispanic hypothesis, and such is the purpose of this paper, in which the author takes issue with an allegedly early Stanzaic Irish poem with a "zajalesque" structure, as well as with an attempt at proving that a non-Khalilian, presumably Hispanic type of metrics was practiced in Al-Andalus. The final portion of this article is devoted to some thematic allusions to prostitution, restricted to non-Muslim women, and homosexual love in Andalusi Stanzaic poetry, not entirely a novelty but however exhibiting some interesting nuances.
