A rich collection that brings the great Sufi poet Hafiz to Western readers, from bestselling poet Daniel Ladinsky

Acclaimed poet Daniel Ladinsky has made it his life s work to create modern, inspired renderings of the world s most profound spiritual poetry. Through Ladinsky s renderings, Hafiz s voice comes alive across the centuries, singing his timeless message of love.

With this stunning collection, Ladinsky has once again succeeded brilliantly in capturing the essence of one of Islam s greatest poetic and spiritual voices.

Ladinsky is a master who will be remembered for finally bringing Hafiz alive in the West. Alexandra Marks, The Christian Science Monitor
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
There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well.   Coleman Barks
