    Medieval literature is a broad subject, encompassing essentially all written works available in Europe and beyond during the Middle Ages (that is, the one thousand years from the fall of the Western Roman Empire ca. AD to the beginning of the Renaissance in the 14th, 15th or 16th century, depending on country). The literature of this time was composed of religious writings as well as.

    Islamic medicine drew upon Hellenic medical tradition to form its own. Likewise, medieval and early modern scholars in Europe drew upon Islamic traditions and translations as the foundation for their medical enterprise. It was through Arabic translations that the West learned of Hellenic medicine, including the works of Galen and Hippocrates. More recently, the Egyptian novelist Naguib Mahfouz received the Nobel Prize for Literature, but there are also other celebrated authors who figure into the pantheon of great Arabic writers and poets, such as the Lebanese philosopher and writer Khalil Gibran, who wrote the world-famous book The Prophet, or the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.

Indeed, in the Middle Ages, the book becomes an attribute of God ().Every stage in the creation of a medieval book required intensive labor, sometimes involving the collaboration of entire workshops. This book provides a succinct introduction to modern Arabic literature of the 19th and 20th centuries. Designed primarily as an introductory textbook for English-speaking undergraduates, it will also be of interest to a more general readership interested in the contemporary Middle East or in comparative and modern literature.
