Ḥusn al-takhalluṣ was the term that medieval Arabic literary critics used for the rhetorical device by which Arabic poets connected the different themes of the polythematic qaṣīdah. In early times poets often dispensed with a transition. In the ʿAbbāsid period however, the poets bestowed more effort on the shaping of ḥusn al-takhalluṣ. They also had to adjust it to changes in the nasīb, the opening part of the qaṣīdah. The article shows how two important poets of the Ayyūbid era, Ibn al-Nabīh and Ibn Sanāʾ al-Mulk, met the challenge, either by developing further the devices of earlier poets, or by creating totally new transitions.
