    As salaamu alaykum.

    Are there any anthologies (i.e. "Mukhtaraat" or "Muntakhabaat") of MODERN (since the mid-1800s) Arabic works that do a fairly good job of giving one a good taste of the vocab and stylistic elements of contemporary Arabic as opposed to "Classical" Arabic?

    I am looking for something containing selections of poetry, short stories, essays, and maybe even extracts from prominent novels.

    If you have any suggestions, please do share them insha'allah.

    Barakallahu fee.
