About this title


A romantic tale that, as sheer gripping entertainment, bears comparison with the finest in any age or country. Described in the Qur'an as "the most beautiful of stories," the romance of Yusuf and Zulaikha is a theme to which Eastern poets have constantly returned. Undoubtedly in Jami's deeply moving and thought-provoking version it finds its finest expression.

From the Publisher:

Written by the great Sufi poet in 1483 A.D., this masterpiece explores the intimate and many-leveled relationship between love and beauty and portrays erotic and divine love, not as irreconcilably opposite to each other, but as an allegorical continuum.

Judaic, Christian and Islamic versions exist--derived perhaps from an ancient Egyptian source--but none could replace Jami’s rendering. David Pendlebury’s prose translation reaches for the kernel, not merely the husk, of this allegory. But while it does so, there is also humor, excitement, romance and an abundance of insight into human behavior.
