9781512325027: Anthology of the Gazel in Turkish Sufi Poetry

ANTHOLOGY OF THE GAZEL IN TURKISH SUFI POETRY Translation & Introduction Paul Smith The gazel (ghazal) is perhaps the oldest and most difficult and most beautiful and spiritual form of poetry that has ever existed. Although the poets of the gazel may appear to many as open-minded, drunken, outcast lovers, it does not necessarily mean that they all drank the juice of the grape... for it is an inner spiritual state that they often were expressing. The gazel is a conversation between the lover and the beloved and as in all intimate conversation... the talk flows both ways. The subject may not necessary be about love, but it is always from the point of view of one who loves truth, love and beauty. CONTENTS: The Turkish Language...

Large Format Paperback 7” x 10” Pages 296 COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH’S TRANSLATION OF HAFEZ’S DIVAN “It is not a joke... the English version of ALL the ghazals of Hafez is a great feat and of paramount importance. I am astonished..” Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran. “Superb translations. 99% Hafez 1% Paul Smith.” Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator of English to Persian and knower of Hafiz’s Divan off by heart. “Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafez.” Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author).
