Description

Publisher: New York Review Books | ISBN: 9781681375335 | Pages: 96

A selection of original translations of the great Persian poet by an up-and-coming American translator and musician. The thirteenth-century Persian sage Rumi was chiefly known as a preacher and a man of serious and sober views. But at the age of thirty-eight, his encounter with the wandering mystic Shams of Tabriz left him utterly transformed. Rumi became a poet in single-minded pursuit of ecstatic illumination and liberation whose work is meant to induce a similar revelation in his audience, bringing its members to a condition of serenity, compassion, and oneness with the divine. His poetry is a masterpiece of world literature to which readers in many languages continue to return for inspiration and succor as well as aesthetic delight. This new translation preserves the radical intelligence and the ecstatic drama of poems that are as full of individual character as they are of visionary wisdom. Marilyn Hacker, one of America’s finest contemporary poets, praises Haleh Liza Gafori’s new translations of Rumi as “the work of someone who is at once an acute and enamored reader of the original Farsi text, a dedicated miner of context and backstory, and, best of all, a marvelous poet in English.”

About the Author

Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (1207–1273) was a thirteenth-century Sufi mystic born in the Balkh, in present-day Afghanistan. Considered the greatest poet of the Persian language, he also occasionally wrote in Turkish, Greek, and Arabic. His major works include the Masnavi, a six-volume collection of mystical teachings written in rhyming couplets, and the Diwan-e Shams-e Tabrizi, a collection of lyric poetry dedicated to his spiritual mentor. Haleh Liza Gafori is a poet, translator, vocalist, and educator. Her poetry has been published by Columbia University Press, Rattapallax Press, Beyond Borders, and Howl. In addition to the poems of Rumi, Gafori has translated the work of Hafez and contemporary Iranian poets. She has also released music as Haale and as The Mast. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
