RE: Love for a Camel (more information)
in thread Love for a Camel
first He describes the camel, but you should notice that later he start praising his beloved (his woman) this is typical in classic arabic poetry (about horse, camel etc), any arab will tell you that.
Can you pinpoint the transition between the description of Tarfa camel and that of the girl he loves! he start describing his camel, but later his woman (the camel is his "vehicle" to reach his love, a beautiful woman.. which he lavish with a generous yet elocuent words... ) when he start talking about his women!
The text is very rich, inmensly elocuent (to say the least) and in the original language it ryhime gracefully!
PS: in the classical time, the start describing their journy: his feeling , his beast (horse or camel) but gently move to his love sometimes it needs a keen eye to se that transition.. and they do that for many reason.
Great piece thank you
