About this Item

188 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Sheikh Sadi (Muslih-ud-Din Mushrif ibn Abdullah) (1184-1291) is one of the major Persian poets of the medieval period. He is recognised not only for the quality of his writing, but also for the depth of his social thought. A native of Shiraz, Iran, Sheikh Sadi left his native town Shiraz at a young age for Baghdad to study Arabic literature and Islamic sciences at Al-Nizamiyya of Baghdad (1195-1226). When he reappeared in his native Shiraz he was an elderly man. Shiraz, under Atabak Abubakr Sad ibn Zangy (1231-1260) was enjoying an era of relative tranquility. Sadi was not only welcomed to the city but was respected highly by the ruler and enumerated among the greats of the province. In response, Sadi took his nom de plume from the name of the local prince, Sad ibn Zangi, and composed some of his most delightful panegyrics as an initial gesture of gratitude in praise of the ruling house and placed them at the beginning of his Bustan. His best known works are Bustan (The Orchard) completed in 1257 and Gulistan (The Rose Garden) in 1258. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
