Abstract

The eleventh-century Persian poet Manuchehri Dāmghāni began his career in northern Iran and became established as a leading panegyric poet of the Ghaznavids. The panegyric qasida was a major literary articulation of Persianate cultural hegemony. Most of Manuchehri’s pane-gyric qasidas begin with a nasib about the natural world. The nature description as an introduction to panegyric is an integral part of the panegyric poem and its expression of cultural values, but it is also at odds with the praise section that follows it. This project explores how Manuchehri deploys elaborate rhetoric and imagery in the description of nature to offer a commentary on the possibilities of patronage relationships.
