Abstract

In this article I analyze two of Ibn Quzmān's'Īd al-Adhā zajal s in terms of theme, structure, and import. I show that the poems are carefully constructed wholes, through which the poet subtly mocks his patron while obligating him to give up a ram. I furthermore demonstrate that these super ficially simple and lighthearted zajals have multiple layers of meaning, and that fundamentally they contain — of particular relevance to the ruling elites in twelfth-century al-Andalus — sharp social criticism about the practice of religion.
