Editorial Reviews


I prefer Reza Ordoubadian s translations, whose poems
appear much more accurate than previous English versions and yet
still make sense to the reader. So, I highly recommend The Poems of
Hafez to academic and public libraries. --Journal of the Middle East Librarians Association

From the Publisher

202 of Hafez's ghazals have been translated in manner where the melody and the sense of the original still remains.

1.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Flick Through the Book!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 20, 2017
The pages have not been cut straight: they are called "deckled edges", and they look terrible. This makes it impossible to flick through the book with your thumb. When reading poetry, I usually like to flick back and forth between the pages, to read a poem here and then there; when I've read a poetry book, I also sometimes like to go back to a favourite poem: being able to flick through a poetry book is essential for me. This design choice was, in my opinion, a very bad choice: it's a pain in the neck, and it is annoying beyond belief. Just in case you want to know a workaround for easily flicking through the pages: try this. Hold your finger and thumb at the bottom right-hand corner: you can flick the pages there (as the bottoms and tops of the pages have been correctly cut). No doubt the next design publishers will use will include not cutting the top and the bottom of pages. I wouldn't be surprised if publishes soon decided to glue all of the pages together, so that you couldn't ever read the book: just put it up on the shelf for show or something.
