Into the realm of smokeless fire: (Qur'ān 55:14): A critical translation of al-Damīrī's article on the jinn from "Ḥayāt al-Ḥayawān al-Kubrā"Wilson, William J.; Sharpe, Elizabeth Marie, 1953- (The University of Arizona., 1992)This critical English translation of the article on the jinn from the 14th-century zoological work, Ḥayāt al-Ḥayawān al-Kubrā written by the Egyptian al-Damīrī is presented with two primary objectives in mind. The first is to investigate al-Damīrīs sources and scholarship in the context of the Mamlūk period--an era which yielded a profusion of encyclopaedic works covering a wide range of topics. The second goal of this translation and analysis is to reflect on the religious and social significance of the jinn in medieval Islam. An appendix giving biographical data on persons mentioned by al-Damīrī is included. There is also a list of place names and a glossary.
Stories from Klamath Country.Evers, Larry; Lerner, Andrea.; Babcock, Barbara; Zepeda, Ofelia (The University of Arizona., 1991)Stories from Klamath Country is a encounter with contemporary Klamath/Modoc oral literature from south central Oregon. Part ethno-poetics, part folklore, part literary criticism, and part narrative essay, the text presents an encounter with the enduring yet dynamic range of traditional and contemporary Klamath stories. Chapters focus on the issues of the transcription of an oral literature, performance, the connections between traditional and modern storytelling, ethnographic encounters and cross-cultural reading. Old and new stories are presented in this text, framed by an attention to the dynamics of assembling this larger story. Central as well to the discussion is the relationship between storytelling, landscape and identity.
