"An unmistakable voice... What is perhaps most beautiful about War Songs is how 'Antarah hints at tenderness beneath the violence, defending slaughter for a cause and remaining faithful to tribe and family, even in the face of death."
—Marginalia (Los Angeles Review of Books)
"The Library of Arabic Literature has another landmark success with this so-called untranslatable poet...Sixth-century Arabia may be 'strange,' but the years of struggle on the part of this scholar-writer and his poet collaborator have given the general reader a visceral insight into this world in compelling, beautiful poetry."
—Times Literary Supplement
"War Songs is a well-presented collection, with useful supplementary material, from the introductory matter to the appendices."
—The Complete Review
