?Second installation of A Spring of Classical Arabic Poetry launches this week

Dr. Kevin Blankinship

We’re pleased to announce that the second installation of A Spring of Classical Arabic Poetry will be concluding before the new year. We started this project with Dr. Kevin Blankinship of BYU Utah at the beginning of 2021 to introduce to listeners the lives, works and legacies of Arabic language poets from this era.

Poetry in the Arabic language has a greater resonance with wider society than it does in English. Dr. Blankinship in a tone that is both erudite and light-hearted has an engaging story-telling performance of his expertise in these figure and their works.

We will also have a YouTube livestream at the conclusion of the series on Monday 27th December.
