Publisher's Synopsis

Classic Persian legend, a favorite of the Sufis, as told by twelfth-century poet Nizami.

An English translation of Nizami's twelfth-century poetic masterpiece, in which he reshapes the legends of Majnun, the quintessential romantic fool, into a tale of the ideal lover, an allegory of the soul's search for God. Includes a final chapter translated especially for this edition by Omid Safi and Pir Zia Inayat Khan.
