The basis of the study is 'Salaman va Absal', a Persian allegorical romance by 'Abd al-Rahman Jami (d. 898/1492), the great Timurid belletrist and Naqshbandi Sufi, dedicated to Ya'qub. Lingwood demonstrates that 'Salaman va Absal', which modern critics have dismissed as "crude" and "grotesque," is a sophisticated work of political and mystical advice for a Muslim ruler. In the process, he challenges received wisdom concerning Jami, the Aq Qoyunlu, and Perso-Islamic advice literature. Significantly, the study illustrates the extent to which Jami's compositions integrated the Timurid and Aq Qoyunlu realms."@en ;
