Sacred poetry from twelve mystics and saints, rendered brilliantly by Daniel Ladinsky, beloved interpreter of verses by the fourteenth-century Persian poet Hafiz

One of 6 Books Oprah Loves to Give as Gifts During the Holidays

All kinds of beautiful poetry. Hoda Kotb

In this luminous collection, Daniel Ladinsky best known for his bestselling interpretations of the great Sufi poet Hafiz brings together the timeless work of twelve of the world s finest spiritual writers, six from the East and six from the West. Once again, Ladinsky reveals his talent for creating profound and playful renditions of classic poems for a modern audience.

Rumi s joyous, ecstatic love poems; St. Francis s loving observations of nature through the eyes of Catholicism; Kabir s wild, freeing humor that synthesizes Hindu, Muslim, and Christian beliefs; St. Teresa s sensual verse; and the mystical, healing words of Sufi poet Hafiz these along with inspiring works by Rabia, Meister Eckhart, St. Thomas Aquinas, Mira, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and Tukaram are all love poems by God from writers considered conduits of the divine. Together, they form a spiritual treasure to cherish always.
Autorenporträt
Hafis (d. h. Bewahrer: der Ehrenname für diejenigen, die den Koran auswendig beherrschen), lebte von 1326 bis 1390 in Schiras. Er gilt als der größte Dichter Persiens. In seinen Liedern und Gedichten verherrlichte er nicht nur Allah und den Koran, er besang in den feurigsten Tönen die Schönheit der Natur, die Liebe zu Frauen und Knaben, zu Wein, Schenken, Gesang und Tanz. Goethe nennt ihn den "heiligen Hafis". Ein Heiliger, der das Leben in seiner ganzen Fülle und Sinnlichkeit liebte und genauso sinnlich in seinen Gedichten pries.
Rezensionen
Praise for Daniel Ladinsky s rendering

There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well.   Coleman Barks
