The main objective of this survey is to give an idea of the development of Arabic love poetry in the classical Middle Ages in the Arabic countries and the Iberian peninsula. Some Hebrew poet from Muslim Spain will also be mentioned, because the Arabic speaking Jews composed poetry in the Arabic literary tradition, using a kind of Biblical Hebrew, reconstructed from the Hebrew Bible. The terms which indicate forms and genres are given extended explanations and discussion.
