From the renowned translator of The Gift, a rich collection that brings the great Sufi poet to Western readers To Persians , the poems of Hafiz are not classical literature from a remote past but cherished wisdom from a dear and intimate friend that continue to be quoted in daily life. With uncanny insight, Hafiz captures the many forms and stages of love. His poetry outlines the stages of the mystics path of lovea journey in which love dissolves personal boundaries and limitations to join larger processes of growth and transformation. With this stunning collection, Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in translating the essence of one of Islams greatest poetic and spiritual voices. BACKCOVER: If you havent yet had the delight of dining with Daniel Ladinskys sweet, playful renderings of the musings of the great saints, I Heard God Laughingis a perfect appetizer. . . . This newly released edition of his first playful foray into Hafizs divinely inspired poetry is essential reading . . . . Ladinsky is a master who will be remembered for finally bringing Hafiz alive in the West. Alexandra Marks, The Christian Science Monitor
