Description
Summary:This article studies the life and works of a hardly known littérateur and anthologist who lived in early Abbasid Baghdad and al-Fusṭaṭ: Yūsuf b. Ibrāhīm b. al-Dāya. The first part of the article gives an attempted biography on the basis of personal information that can be found in anecdotes that are said to be taken from Yūsuf's works. In the second part, these anecdotes and their relation to Yūsuf's largely neglected literary output will be studied.
