This chapter discusses the legacy of the Golden Age of Hebrew poetry that took place in medieval Iberia during the Andalusi period. It characterizes the unique qualities that differentiate this epoch from other periods in the history of Hebrew verse and examines the the emergence of a new brand of Hebrew secular verse in Jewish Andalusi courtly circles as well as transformative developments in the ancient tradition of Hebrew liturgical poetry (Piyyut) written by Jewish Andalusi poets of the time. The discussion is based on close readings of selected representative passages.
