dc.descriptionProvenance / Custodial history: The manuscript owner inherited it from his brother (Imam Nimbaly Thiam) after his death, who had inherited it from their father. Their father was born in the region of Sedhiou.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe manuscript is a poem dealing with the story of an outlaw man called Al-Shanfarā al-Azdī who lived in the 6th century during the pre-Islamic era. The man decided to avenge the killing of his father. He lived for awhile in the wilderness to prepare for his revenge. He later on killed many of his enemies. The manuscript is written in Arabic with extensive comments in Mandinka Ajami. The Ajami comments were made by the current owner when he was studying the poem as a student. The owner said that he made the Ajami comments on the manuscript after every session he had with his teacher. The comments helped him understand better the form and content of the poem and also enabled other Mandinka speakers to have access to the insights in the poem.en_US
