"A complaint over the unfortunate circumstances of his times and over his own lot" (cf. GAL). "The 'Lamiyat al-'Agam', a famous poem by At-Tograi [...] It was first edited by Golius together with the Sentences of Ali in 1629. This is the first [edition] accompanied by Arabic scholia, and also the first readily available edition containing Golius’ translation: Anchersen's edition of 1707, which published this translation for the first time, was lost at sea except for six copies" (Smitskamp).
