PRINCESSES, SUFIS, DERVISHES, MARTYRS & FEMINISTS: NINE GREAT WOMEN POETS OF THE EAST Translations & Introductions by Paul Smith Rabi’a of Basra (d. 801) is considered one of the greatest Saints and founders of Sufism and composed powerful spiritual verse in Arabic. Rabi’a of Balkh (10th c.) was the princess of Afghanistan whose love for a slave of her father the king caused her downfall... she wrote many of her poems in her own blood on the walls of the prison. Mahsati (12th century) was the liberated court poet of Sultan Sanjar who knew Nizami, Omar Khayyam. She composed in the ruba’i form and revolutionized it with her often scandalous verse. Lalla Ded (1320-1392) is the famous female poet/saint from Kashmir. Her vakhs (poem/sayings) are sung even today in Kashmir. She was a bridge between Hindu mysticism and Sufism. Jahan Khatun (1326-1416) was a beautiful, liberated princess in Shiraz and a friend and pupil of the great Hafiz... her Divan is four times the size of his. Makhfi or Zebunissa (1638-1702) was the daughter of the Emperor of India Aurangzeb and was eventually imprisoned and tortured to death for her Sufi views. Her over poems are deep, powerful, spiritual and at times heartbreaking. Tahirah (1817-1853). Tahirah was a beautiful and intelligent woman who led a short and stormy life. She was a devotee of the Bab, who from Shiraz had given his prophetic message that would later appear in the form of Baha-ul-lah, the founder of the Baha’is. She was not only a poet but also wrote prose. Hayati (18th - 19th C.) was born into a Sufi family in the Kerman province of Persia. She was initiated into the Ni’matullahi Sufi order by Nur ‘Ali Shah and was well-known for her passionate, mystical poems. Parvin (1907-1941) was one of Iran’s greatest female poets. Her poems had mainly social or mystical subjects, often about the tyranny of the rich, rights of the poor and downtrodden, the role of women. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept and the beauty and meaning of all these beautiful, sometimes mystical poems. Pages 367. COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH’S VERSION OF HAFIZ’S ‘DIVAN’. “It is not a joke... the English version of ALL the ghazals of Hafiz is a great feat and of paramount importance. I am astonished. If he comes to Iran I will kiss the fingertips that wrote such a masterpiece inspired by the Creator of all.” Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran. “Superb translations. 99% Hafiz 1% Paul Smith.” Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator into Persian and knower of Hafiz’s Divan off by heart. Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of over 80 books of Sufi poets of Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish and other languages... including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Nesimi, Kabir, Nesimi, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, and many others, as well as poetry, fiction, plays, biographies and screenplays.
