The Alhambra in “Fatima’s Love”
Currently, I am reading this public domain book titled “Moorish Literature”. If you wish to read this, I must warn you: Casual sexism ahead.
Cautions aside, let me go ahead to my main point. After reading the preface (a bit of a slog), the book begins with a section dedicated to “Moorish Ballads”. Poetry featuring stories that mention the Alhambra castle. From what I am reading so far, the ballads use this famed building as a way to show that the characters come from wealthy and noble standing.
