Persian love poetry
Interlink Books, 2006 - Family & Relationships - 95 pages
A collection of beautiful Persian love poetry, freshly translated and richly illustrated with magnificent images from world famous collections. Love is a major theme in Persian poetry and can be interpreted in various ways-as mystic love, the basis of the relationship between humans and God, or as passionate or affectionate love between lovers, husbands and wives, parents and children, family and friends, or even as patriotic love of Iran. The literary style and indeed the Persian language itself are floral and elaborate, but the themes differ little from our preoccupations with love and romance today. This collection of extracts has been selected from the best of traditional and contemporary Persian poetry. With a brief introduction to the Persian poetic tradition and a short biographical note about each of the poets, this beautiful anthology is the perfect way to discover the treasures of Persian literature and art.
