Descripció

The untold story of how the Arabic Qur'an became the English Koran

For millions of Muslims, the Qur'an is sacred only in Arabic, the original Arabic in which it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century. To many Arab and non-Arab believers alike, the book literally defies translation, yet English translations are growing in both number and importance. Bruce Lawrence tells the remarkable story of the centuries-long quest to translate the Qur'an' s lyrical verses-and to make English itself an Islamic language. A translation saga like no other, this panoramic book looks at cyber Koran s, versions by feminist translators, and even a graphic Qur'an by the acclaimed visual artist Sandow Birk.
