Renditions from the Divan-e Jami
Pages: 112 pages
Size: Paperback, 5.5 X 8.5 inches
Following in the footsteps of the Persian mystical poets Rumi, Hafez, Nizami and others, the timeless works in this collection express the poet’s overwhelming devotion to and longing for the Divine Beloved. This is heart-opening poetry of longing and love from the last great poet in the classical Persian tradition. Jami’s poetry seethes with spiritual ardor without being sentimental. His themes are varied, but ultimately lead back to a singular teaching that the Divine is not separate from the one who seeks and loves.
