El extraño viaje de Ibn al-Jaṭīb por los agitados llanos de Tāmasnā [0.55 mb]

During the winter of 1362 the exiled Granadian vizier Lisan al-Din Ibn al-Khaṭib was on a journey through the Maghrebian region of Tamasna in the midst of civil war. While his dethroned Nasrid monarch was fighting in Andalusian lands with Castilian support to regain the throne of Granada, he was crossing tribal regions to meet the great players of the Merinid conflict. The story of his journey, written in rhymed prose as a literary epistle, is contained in his work Nufadat al-yirab, which is considered his memories of exile. This paper analyzes the unique context of this rihla, offers a viable hypothesis to the motivations of the author and translates the unfinished text accompanied by a philological study that allows us to savor the exquisite and distinctive Khatibian style.
