The conference of the birds
A prose translation of a greatly renowned Sufi poem is a fable composed of many delightful and amusing tales-within-a-tale that serves as an allegory of the soul's journey to union with God. Its author, the 12th-century Persian poet and spiritual master Attar, is one of the most influential figures in Sufism, the mystical movement that arose from Islam.
