In The Poems of Hafez, Reza Saberi translates from Persian into English the lyric poems ("ghazals") of the fourteenth-century Iranian poet Shamsoddin Khaja Mohammad Hafez. For the translation, Saberi has used the Qazvini-Ghani Edition of Hafez, which was originally published in 1941 and republished with additional notes and indexes with the help of A. Jorbozedar in 1988. The numbers of ghazals in translation correspond to those of the said edition. The Poems of Hafez is the first faithful, authentic and complete translation of the Ghazals of Hafez by an Iranian scholar, though more than 600 years have passed since the death of Hafez who is considered the greatest lyricist of Iran. Particularly appropriate for university students of Persian literature classes and persons interested in Oriental and/or mystical poetry and readers of New Age materials.show more
