Item Description: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1902. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. In contemporary cloth bdg. Uncut paper. Minor fading. Large roy. 8vo. (23 x 19 cm). In English and Persian. [xxii], 86, [1] p. The lament of Bâbâ Tâhir. Being the Rubâ'iyât of Bâbâ Tâhir, Hamadânî ('Uryân). The Persian text edited, annotated and translated by Edward Heron-Allen. And rendered into English verse by Elizabeth Curtis Brenton. Baba Tahir (var. Baba Taher Oryan Hamadani) was an 11th-century Persian poet. His poetry is written in Hamedani dialect of Persian language. According to L. P. Elwell-Sutton he probably wrote in the local dialect, which "Most traditional sources call it loosely Luri, while the name commonly applied from an early date to verses of this kind, Fahlaviyat, presumably implies that they were thought to be in a language related to the Middle Iranian dialect Pahlavi. Rouben Abrahamian however found a close affinity with the dialect spoken at the present time by the Jews of Hamadan." According to The Cambridge History of Iran, Baba Tahir spoke a certain Persian dialect. Bookseller Inventory # 031107

Excerpt from The Lament of Baba Tahir: Being the Rubaiyat of Baba Tahir, Hamadani (Uryan) To write an introduction to the poems, and to en deavour to give information about the life of an author of whom the only thing that can be said with perfect accuracy is that practically nothing is known of him, suggests the brick-making industry as practised by the Jews in Egypt. Though the ruba iyat of Babs Tahir are chaunted and recited to the present day all over Persia, to the accompaniment of the three-stringed Viol or lute, known as the Sih-tar Three-strings and few collections of poems have been published in that country (or indeed in the Persian language), since the introduction of the lithographic press, that do not contain some specimens of his quatrains, concerning the poet himself few precise details, biographical or otherwise, have yet come to light.

His simple, mystical poems that he would sing while wandering naked throughout the land had a profound influence on Sufis and dervishes and other rubai composers, especially Abu Said, Ibn Sina and Omar Khayyam. Included in the Introduction the life of Baba Tahir, a history of the rubai and examples by its greatest exponents. Selected Bibliography. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept as well as the beauty and meaning of these immortal four-line poems. 154 pages. COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITHS VERSION OF HAFIZS DIVAN.
