'Abd al-Ghanī Ismā'īl al-Nābulusī was well-versed in the poetry of Ibn al-Fārid, having composed a commentary on the latter's entire Dīwān. But in addition to reading and writing on Ibn al-Fārid's verse, al-Nābulusī also heard it chanted during religious ceremonies. Reader-Response Theory predicts that a person's reactions to a poem will vary depending on contexts. This essay considers al-Nābulusī's responses to two encounters with Ibn al-Fārid's al-Jīmīyah, first when al-Nābulusī heard it chanted at the poet's shrine outside of Cairo, and then nearly twenty years later in Damascus when he wrote his mystical commentary on the poem.
