The Divan Of Hafez by Ḥāfiẓ

Original Title: The Divan Of Hafez

Khaja Shamsuddin Mohammad Hafez (1327-1390 C.E.) was born in Shiraz, a city in Southwest Iran where he lived his entire life. The elegance, beauty, and delicacy of his poetry have made him the most beloved poet of the Persian-speaking world. Hafez composed the bulk of his poetry in the form of ghazal, a lyrical poem similar to an English sonnet whose length ranges from seven to thirteen couplets. Ghazals often deal with love and beauty and may occasionally be interspersed with philosophical, ethical, didactic, or critical lines about life and the universe. Reza Saberi has produced a new English translation of the complete Divan of Hafez, using Dr. Parviz N. Khanlari's Edition. The text of The Divan of Hafez is an authentic translation of all of the poems of Hafez complete with their Persian originals."

The Divan E Jamie by Andrew Winans

Original Title: The Divan E Jamie

These are the spontaneous and continuous utterances of a lover, both in ecstasy and as he suffers. This is the opening of a special and personal world of love. It’s a chronicle and a testimony. Nothing here is phony. You will be appalled and you will be amazed, but this love continues to this day. These poems cover a relatively brief period (2 months) in the on-going history of this love. Drink these words like the wine they are. Open your mind and see afar. Love is waiting...

Poems From The Divan Of Hafiz by Gertrude Bell

Original Title: Poems From The Divan Of Hafiz

Hafiz is renowned as one of the most celebrated Persian poets. Living in the 14th Century, Hafiz was frequently persecuted for his disregard for the religious and political orthodoxy. People read different things into his poetry but he was unequivocal in his denunciation of religious rituals that were devoid of spiritual intensity. He also wrote extensively on the theme of love, both human and divine, alluding to the ecstasy of mystical union with the Divine. In depicting the intensity of love, Gertrude Bell thought Hafiz comparable to the West’s own Shakespeare. Gertrude Bell’s translation is considered to be one of the most lucid, musical and accurate of the verse translations.

The spiritual and historical and human content is here in understandable, beautiful poetry: the correct rhyme-structure has been achieved, without intruding, in readable English. In this companion volume in the Introduction his life story is told in greater detail than any where else; his spirituality is explored, his influence on the life, poetry and art of the East and the West, the form and function of his poetry, and the use of his book as a worldly guide and spiritual oracle. Included are notes to most poems, glossary and selected bibliography and two indexes. First published in 1986 in a two-volume hardback limited edition the book quickly went out of print. 224 pages.

He has no peer!- Gertrude Bell: -It is as if his mental Eye, endowed with wonderful acuteness of vision, had penetrated into those provinces of thought which we of a later age were destined to inhabit.- Meher Baba: -There is no equal to Hafez in poetry. He was a Perfect Master ... His Divan is the best book in the world because it engenders feelings which ultimately lead to illumination.- COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH'S TRANSLATION OF HAFEZ'S 'DIVAN'. -It is not a joke... the English version of ALL the ghazals of Hafez is a great feat and of paramount importance. I am astonished.- Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran. -Superb translations. 99% Hafez 1% Paul Smith.- Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator of English to Persian and knower of Hafiz's Divan off by heart. -Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafez.- Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author).
