It was through its stylistic virtuosity as well as its awareness of a situation of social and intellectual crisis that the maqama, portraying the picaresque dramatic performance of a needy literary artist, won global fame. The most celebrated maqamas of Al-Hariri (d.1122) have not only formed part of the Arabic literary canon for many centuries but have inspired even extra-Arabic oriental literatures such as Hebrew and Christian-Syrian and - more lately - modern arabic theatre. (Text in English)Das Werk stellt erstmals die Geschichte einer der originellsten und zugleich meistrezipierten Prosagattungen der arabischen Literatur vor: die Maqame, eine dramatisch-pikareske Selbstinszenierung eines mittellosen Sprachkunstlers, die ihre Einpragsamkeit ihrem gesellschaftskritischen Gehalt nicht weniger als ihrer sprachlichen Virtuositat verdankt.

Die Maqamen Hairis (st.1122) gehoren nicht nur seit Jahrhunderten und bis heute zum arabischen literarischen Kanon, sie haben auch die ausser-arabische (hebraische und syrisch-christliche) orientalische Literatur und sogar das moderne arabische Theater inspiriert.
