520    This book is the first study of Persian literary riddles 
       to appear in English, analysing a wide range of complex 
       riddling poems systematically from the tenth to the 
       twelfth century. In addition to the genre of riddles, the 
       book examines the relationship between metaphors and 
       riddles and the genre of literary description. Riddles 
       belong to the oldest genre in many literary traditions. O 
       amber-bodied idol, precious ruby!You are fire with 
       ambergris smoke, amber with fiery smoke;You have silver in
       your heart, red sulfur in your mouth;You have a snake in 
       your throat, its teeth are on your tongue. You.
