Summary
According to Aristotle, a well-crafted recognition scene is one of the basic constituents of a successful narrative. It is the point when hidden facts and identities come to light́04in the classic instance, a son discovers in horror that his wife is his mother and his children are his siblings. Aristotle coined the term ́0anagnÃþrisiś09 for the concept. In this book Philip F. Kennedy shows how 'recognition' is key to an understanding of how one reads values and meaning into, or out of, a story. He analyses texts and motifs fundamental to the Arabic literary tradition in five case studies: the Quŕ09an; the biography of Muhammad; Joseph in classical and medieval re-tellings; the ́08deliverance from adversitý09 genre and picaresque narratives
