Revealing Islam’s formative influence on literary Romanticism, Islam and Romanticism traces a lively lineage of interreligious exchange, surveying the impact of Muslim sources on the West’s most seminal authors. Spanning continents and centuries, the book surveys Islamic receptions that bridge Romantic periods and personalities, unfolding from Europe to Britain and America, and embracing figures from Goethe to Byron and Emerson. Broad in historical scope, Islam and Romanticism is also specific in personal detailexposing Islam’s role as a creative catalystbut also as a spiritual resource, with the Qur’an and Sufi poetry infusing Western literary publications.Highlighting cultural encounter, rather than political exploitation, the book differs from previous treatments by accenting Western receptions that transcend mere Orientalism, finding the genesis of a global literary culture first emerging in the Romantics’ early appeal to Islamic traditions.

About this product :
Whether you are an Islamophobe, or a seeker of truth, this book is for you. If you’ve ever wondered about the truth behind so many of the issues that hit the headlines these days, then this book will fill in some of the gaps for you. Is there is a connection between Islam and violence? Why do Muslim women wear the veil? What exactly are the rights of Muslim women? And just what is this thing called Jihad? The answers come together to paint a vivid and accurate picture of what Muslims really believe. Skinner manages to convey all this in plain English that, despite the reference book context, comes from the heart – she deftly puts across the basic tenets of Islam while maintaining that crucial “personal touch�? that keeps the reader involved and engaged. - P.
