الوصف

Dirges in Hebrew for the deaths of women, including at least one that the poet composed for his own daughter. It would be interesting to compare these to Abū Ḥayyān al-Andalusi's (d. 1344) dirges for his daughter Nuḍār (see e.g. Homerin, "Reflection on Poetry in the Mamluk Age," where it is stated that "even a single elegy for a daughter is rare in Arabic poetry"). Information in part from Goitein's note card. ASE.
