Ces petits joyaux nous transportent dans un monde fascinant et insolite, celui des bédouins de los angeles péninsule Arabique. Ils se font l'écho d'un temps où les poètes étaient à los angeles fois de vaillants combattants - il arrivait qu'une joute poétique tienne lieu de bataille entre deux tribus ! - et des oracles respectés : d'une époque où le braveness et l. a. générosité étaient les vertus du preux, avec le goût du vin et l'amour des femmes. Lamentations sur les vestiges du campement déserté par l'aimée et réflexion sur los angeles fuite du temps, périples à dos de chamelle, chasses à l. a. gazelle, évocations érotiques, bravades. Beuveries : tels sont les thèmes qui hantent ces textes fulgurants, dont los angeles splendeur poétique, mille cinq cents ans plus tard, demeure intacte.
