    Poems by HAFIZ
    The Great Sufi Master


    Translations by Daniel Ladinsky


    More than any other other Persian poet, it is perhaps Hafiz who accesses 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 "Tongue of the Invisible."

    With this stunning collection of 250 of Hafiz's most intimate poems, Daniel Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in capturing the essence of one of Islam's greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line of THE GIFT imparts the wonderful qualities of this spiritual teacher: an audacious love that empowers lives, profound knowledge, wild generosity , and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.

    "There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well."
    —Coleman Banks

    "These remarkable short poems are magic tricks—verbal sleights of hand—that  cause the mind to blink and that replace the imagined perception of grief and woe with the reality of joy."
    —Sylvia Boorstein


    Paperback edition.
