Ameen Fares Rihani, an American Lebanese writer, has visionary and revolutionary thoughts that are applicable to the past, present, and future. Since Rihani''s critical and eclectic ideas have not been tackled in depth, this book fills this gap by profoundly delving into all aspects of criticism touched upon in his English and Arabic oeuvres. The focus of this work is on two newly published books: The Lore of the Arabian Nights and Critiques in Art. The critical analysis of Rihani''s work is worth perusing because its subject proves to be a visionary orator whose prophetic ideas are more applicable today than they were a century ago. Highlighting Rihani''s criticism is crucial nowadays because he offered numerous practical solutions to solve economic, social, religious, and political conflicts that affect the Middle East. This study should particularly be useful to modern historians, reformers, and writers who will be amazed at how thoughtful, visionary, and liberal Rihani is in delineating many life aspects and attempting their reform by means of tolerance and persuasion.
