About the author
Ahmad Fа̄ris Shidyа̄q (1805-1887), a foundational figure in modern Arabic literature, was a pioneering publisher, poet, essayist, lexicographer, and translator. The first English translation of his best-known work, Leg over Leg—describing the life of the Fariyaq, his alter ego, offering commentary on intellectual and social issues—was published in a four-volume edition (along with the original 1855 Arabic text) by NYU Press in 2014.
