The Art of Praising Yourself

Description

We take a look through the eyes of Arabic literature at the art of praising oneself. Some poets were shameless when it came to self-promotion. But is this a good idea? Are there lessons to be learned? In this episode we will go through the poetry of Hatim at-Ta’iyy and Al-Mutanabbi said in Fakhr (self-exaltation)
