~SANA’I: SELECTED POEMS~ Translation, Introduction & Notes by Paul Smith One of the most prolific and influential Sufi Master Poets of all time Hakim Sana’i (d.1131) composed many ghazals, masnavis, qasidas, qita’s and over 400 ruba’is that influenced all the ruba’i writers that followed him. His long masnavi (rhyming couplets) mystical work The Enclosed Garden of the Truth is said to have had a profound influence on Rumi’s composing of his Masnavi and in Sadi’s composing his Bustan (’The Orchard’). Included in the Introduction are the Life and Times and Poetry of Sana’i and a history of the various poetic forms that he wrote in. Selected Bibliography. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept as well as the beauty and meaning of these immortal poems. 173 Pages. COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH’S TRANSLATION 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 of many mystical works in English into Persian and knower of Hafiz’s Divan off by heart. “I was very impressed with the beauty of these books.” Dr. R.K. Barz. Faculty of Asian Studies, Australian National University. “Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafiz.” Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author). Paul Smith (b. 1945) is a poet, author and translator of many books of Sufi poets from the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages... including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre, Lalla Ded, Mahasti and many others, as well as poetry, fiction, plays, children’s books, biographies and screenplays.
