"The Gift - Poems by Hafiz - Translations by Daniel Ladinsky"
Chosen by author Elizabeth Gilbert as one of her ten favorite books.
From Amazon listing: More than any other Persian poet--even Rumi--
Hafiz expanded the mystical, healing dimensions of poetry.
Because his poems were often ecstatic love songs from God to his beloved world,
many have called Hafiz the “Invisible Tongue.”
Indeed, Daniel Ladinsky has said that his work with Hafiz is an attempt to do the impossible:
to render Light into words--to make the Luminous Resonance of God tangible to our finite senses.
With this stunning collection of intimate poems, Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in presenting the essence of one of Islam’s greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line of The Gift imparts the wonderful qualities of this master Sufi poet and spiritual teacher: encouragement, an audacious love that touches lives, profound knowledge, generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.
