With poetry which speaks across the ages, Sa’di (121081) is a vital classical poet and a towering figure of the medieval Persian canon. Comparable in skill and stature to other Persian poets such as Ferdowsi, Hafez, Rumi and Omar Khayyam, Sa’di’s verses best known through his ‘Bustan’ and ‘Golestan’ address universal themes of passion, love and the human condition in works which are both psychologically perceptive and beautifully crafted. His mystical writings, contemporaneous with Rumi, reveal a degree of depth, wisdom and insight which have placed Sa’di in the pantheon of world literature.

In this essential new translation of Sa’di’s work, leading expert on Iranian studies Homa Katouzian seeks to bring the poet’s lyrics to a new readership. The book provides the Persian text and Katouzian’s English translation side-by-side, creating an indispensible tool for students and enthusiasts of Iranian history, literature and culture.
