Product description

Hafiz has no peer." -- Goethe. "Poetry" is the greatest literary form of ancient Persia and modern Iran, and the 14th-century poet known as Hafiz is its preeminent master. This collection is derived from Hafiz's "Divan "(collected poems), a classic of Sufism. The short poems, called "ghazals, " are sonnet-like arrangements of varied numbers of couplets. In the tradition of Persian poetry and Sufi philosophy, each poem corresponds to two interpretations, sensual and mystic. This 19th-century translation by historian Gertrude Bell remains widely acclaimed by scholars and readers.
