Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Moreen, an expert on Jewish and Islamic issues currently teaching at Swarthmore, has translated and edited a collection of Judeo-Persian literature stretching from the eighth to the 20th centuries. Written in classical Persian but using the Hebrew alphabet, these texts include biblical epics and commentary, lyrical poetry, and philosophy. Among the 30 writers represented, those noted for their epics, shorter poems, and commentary include Shalin (14th century), Imrani (15th century), and Hakam (19th century); Amina, who bridged the 17th and 18th centuries, is celebrated for his lyric and religious poems. Brief, thoughtful discussions of Persian literature and history frame the texts. The literature commingles Jewish and Muslim ideas: the Shia Muslim movement, Sufi mysticism, and the Bukhara Jewish circle are all elements of the tradition, and forced conversion (by both Zoroastrians and Muslims) is a theme in some of the selections. An exciting and fascinating view of a great literature, this is an important addition to Jewish cultural studies. Highly recommended for Jewish literature collections.DGene Shaw, NYPL
