Description :

Asrar al-balaghah fi ‘ilm al-bayan (The Secrets of Metaphor in Rhetoric), by Imam Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani, rahimaullah. This book is a modern scholarly edition of the seminal work by al-Jurjani (died circa 1078 Common Era) on Arabic rhetoric, especially the branch called al-bayan (use of metaphor and figures of speech), of which he is considered the founder.

In the classical context, ‘ilm al-balaghah (rhetoric) is divided into three interconnected arts, al-ma’ani (clear expression); al-bayan; and badi’ (embellishment and beautiful style). Al-Jurjani’s study of the stylistic and psychological importance of metaphor received widespread acceptance by classical Arabic writers and remains a source of discussion and research in modern linguistics.

The work is carefully organised. After defining a particular figure of speech and pointing to its differences from other types of metaphor, al-Jurjani gives examples from leading poets such as Abu Nuwas (756-814) and al-Mutannabi (915-65) and from proverbs and sayings. He then dissects the passages with reference to the morphology of the tropes.
