Yasmine Seale will present The Dove’s Necklace, a fascinating text on the nature of love from 11th-century Cordoba, and read from her translation in progress.

A masterpiece of Arabic prose and poetry, a jewel of observation and a window on the intimate life of Muslim Spain, The Dove’s Necklace was composed by the young Ibn Hazm before he became the towering jurist and theologian we know today. It survives thanks to a single manuscript. Though he later renounced the work, it had a deep and lasting influence on the literature of courtly love.
