Like Sterne or Rabelais with his humorous view and technical ingenuity, al-Shidyaq produced in Leg over Lega work that is distinctive and inaccessible to classification. The work was initially criticized because of its attack on authority as well as its religious skepticism as well as its “obscenity,” and later editions were frequently reduced. It is the very first English version of the book and is a faithful reproduction of its original Arabic text that was first published under the supervision of the author in 1855.
