Divine flashes by Fakhr al-Dīn Ibrāhīm ʻIrāqī( Book )

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fakhruddin 'Iraqi was one of the foremost expositors of Sufi teachings and one of the greatest of Persian poets. Born in 1213 (618) in the city of Hamadan in west Persia, he lived during the revival of Islamic spirituality that was shaped by the writings of Jalaluddin Rumi and Ibn 'Arabi'. 'Iraqi's masterpiece "Divine Flashes" became a popular and influential text in Persian speaking Islamic lands. The work's beautiful descriptions of "the mysteries of Union" in the language of love are classic expressions of Sufi love mysticism. In this volume, William Chittick and Peter Wilson present the first English edition of " Divine Flashes" with a sensitivity that conveys both the metaphysical richness and the poetic subtleties of the work. Writing in the preface to this book, Professor Seyyed Hossein Nasr says of Iraqi: "If he sang the love of God in verses of great beauty, it is because his soul had itself become a song of God, a melody in harmony with, and a strain of, the music issuing from the abode of the Beloved"
Sacred drift : essays on the margins of Islam by Peter Lamborn Wilson( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Lamborn Wilson proposes a set of heresies, a culture of resistance, that dispels the false image of Islam as monolithic, puritan, and two-dimensional. Here is the story of the African-American noble Drew Ali, the founder of 'Black Islam' in this country, and of the violent end of his struggle for 'love, truth, peace, freedom, and justice.' Another essay deals with Satan and 'Satanism' in Esoteric Islam; and another offers a scathing critique of 'Authority' and sexual misery in modern Puritanist Islam. 'The Anti-caliph' evokes a hot mix of Ibn Arabi's tantric mysticism and the revolutionary teachings of the 'Assassins.' The title essay, 'Sacred Drift, ' roves through the history and poetics of Sufi travel, from Ibn Khaldun to Rimbaud in Abyssinia to the Situationists. A 'Romantic' view of Islam is taken to radical extremes; the exotic may not be 'True, ' but it's certainly a relief from academic propaganda and the obscene banality of simulation. Peter Lamborn Wilson lives in New York and works for Semiotext(e) magazine, Pacifica Radio, and the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. A long decade in the Orient (1968-1981) inspires his writing, including The Drunken Universe: An Anthology of Persian Sufi Poetry and Scandal: Essays in Islamic Heresy."

Chris Martin : drawings by Chris Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America's finest abstract painters, Chris Martin (born 1954) explores the fertile areas between sophisticated formalism and the visionary joy of outsider art, making abstract painting look enviably effortless. For this massive volume, Martin and Dan Nadel have assembled a massive compendium of Martin's drawings from the past 30 years, presenting them chronologically so the reader-viewer can follow the artist's continual pursuit and discovery of new forms--from sound waves to mushrooms to Tantric arches to the iconic visages of James Brown and Sigmar Polke. For Martin, drawing is an end in itself that also often leads to themes he later reprises and explores in his painting. Taking its design inspiration from the artist's books of Dieter Roth, Drawings acts as a flipbook of discovery, one that charts Martin's artistic development over the past three decades. -- Provided by publisher

As information and communication technologies saturate our world, how is art giving way to new forms of cultural symbolic manipulation? Are there any strategies that can elude being reduced to styles in the service of sales, or are critical practices doomed to play cat and mouse with the forces of consumerism? Beyond the obsolete models of artist or author as genius and their fetish objects, what collective and collaborative practices are inventing new terrains and flows?
