"The Maqamat recounts in the words of the narrator, al-Harith ibn Hammam, his repeated encounters with Abu Zayd al-Saruji, an unabashed confidence artist and wanderer possessing all the eloquence, grammatical knowledge, and poetic ability of al-Hariri himself. Time and again, al-Harith finds Abu Zayd at the centre of a throng of people in a new city. Abu Zayd brings tears to his listeners' eyes with the vivid description of his pretended hardships and dazzles them with his poetry and then suddenly disappears with their presents." Cf.
