Book Description HTML

Geoffrey Clarke looks at English Literature in relation to Islam and poses the questions: Does it furnish a record of integration, amelioration and harmony? Does the record of the canonical literature present Islam in its true light as a glorious world religion, or does it denigrate and despise the teachings and tenets of the religion? Unfortunately, Geoffrey Clarke observes a litany of abuse and misinformation about the religion of Islam and the relations between the Christian West and the Islamic sphere. Christian writers such as Roger Bacon, Charles Doughty, Edward Pococke, Henry Maundrell and William Muir were hostile, superior and arrogant towards Islam and it is not until we move into the modern era that we see a more positive and welcoming approach to Muslims and to their ideology.
