Abstract:

More than any other Persian poet, it is perhaps Hafiz who accesses the mystical, healing dimensions of poetry. With this collection of 250 of Hafiz's most intimate poems, translator Ladinsky has succeeded in capturing the essence of one of Islam's greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line imparts the qualities of this spiritual teacher: an audacious love that empowers lives, profound knowledge, wild generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.--From publisher description.
