Format: Hardcover
This is not a book for the non-scholar or the non-serious. It is a technical look at the poetry of Mowlana. It places him where he belongs as one of the world's great poets. If you are serious and really want to know more about the poetry of Mowlana or of Persian poetry in general, buy it and read. Thank you Dr. Keshavarz. This is a real contribution to field.
