Resource: Arabic Literature Podcast


root: ح-ل-ق / noun / plural: حَلَقات / definition: episode

I’m rushed off my feet this week and to top it off, I have an important deadline lying menacingly in wait on the footstep of Friday evening when it will, assuredly, catch me off-guard and drag me into the lair of panic that I’ve frequented so often, it has several caffeinated drinks waiting for me.

Still, it’s never too busy for a (short) blog post.

So I wanted to share this Arabic podcast I came across recently that’s all about literature. Right up my street.

It’s called أَسمار and you’ll find it on all the usual podcast platforms. I’ve listened to a few episodes this week already, and I think my favourite so far has been في رحاب الترجمة, which focuses on Arabic literary translation.

I’m also around halfway through the episode on the Arabic haiku, which is well-worth a listen!

Note: أسمار is the plural of سَمَر—here’s the meaning from the Hans Wehr:
