The antonymic relationship of praise and blame is a major feature of Arabic literary production. In poetry praise and blame are respectively represented by the genres madīḥ and hiğāʾ, that are sometimes composed in turn on the very same object or person. In prose, this antonymic relationship, taking the form of antithesis, becomes an organizational pattern that gives origin to al-maḥāsin wa-l-masāwī genre. This pattern was applied in works such as the anthologies of al-Ṯaʿālibī (429/1038) and the last example of the genre, Ġurar al-ḫaṣāʾiṣ al-wāḍiha wa-ġurar al- naqāʾiḍ al-fāḍiḥa, of Ǧamāl al-Dīn al-Waṭwāṭ (718/1318). Our article deals with functions and modalities of the antithetic pattern praise / blame in some adab anthologies.
