Jami (1414-1492), a scholar and mystic, is considered by many to be one of the greatest Persian poets of the 15th century. This volume, edited by F.

Jami (1414-1492), a scholar and mystic, is considered by many to be one of the greatest Persian poets of the 15th century. This volume, edited by F. Hadland Davis and first published in 1908, contains selections from some of Jami's best-known works. "Salaman and Absal" examines the earthly love ("the love that binds and fetters and is corruptible") of the eponymous star-crossed lovers and contrasts it with "incorruptible" celestial love. The "Lawa'ih" is a treatise on Sufism. "Yusuf and Zulaikha" tells of Zulaikha's unrequited love for Yusuf, and the "Baharistan" is a book of verse and prose written as a series of eight "gardens." A brief biography of Jami and some additional information on each of the selections are included in this timeless work.

This is a basic introduction to Jami the Persian Sufi poet. The first part of the book covers his life, a brief biography of Jami. The next chapters cover some of his most famous works the story of Salman and Absal, the Lawa'ih, the story of Yusuf and Zulakha and the Baharistan. The final part of the book are selections from the above 4 books translated.

While this is a nice little book it is very brief and covers only the most basic of the life and works of Jami. The author however, has remained faithful to the teachings of Jami and has done a fairly good job in explaining the teachings of Jami to the reader and providing him/her with a fair introduction to further reading.
