Description

Exploring medieval literary representations of the Islamic conquest of Spain in 711, Hazbun discusses chronicles, epic and clerical poetry, and early historical novels. While material on the conquest of Spain is substantial, it is understudied and this book works to fill that gap.

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2016


Hazbun's writing style is fluid and eloquent, her observations engaging and persuasive, not only broaching the literary and historical significance of the texts in question but also exploring some of the key theoretical principles that underpin questions of cultural identity, power, and legacy alongside their expression in medieval narrative. (izen Yiacoup, Modern Language Review, Vol. 113 (04), October, 2018)


The study is likewise about the underlying sources, perceptions, rhetoric, and, one might add, philosophy of history. This is a fascinating and remarkably nuanced analysis. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. (E. H. Friedman, Choice, Vol. 53 (9), May, 2016)
