"This work by Nūr-ud-Dīn Abd-ur-Rahmān Jāmī is a reproduction of the 1928 edition published by the Royal Asiatic Society. It contains the full text and English translation as well as a new preface by Seyyed Hossein Nasr. Jāmī needs little introduction. He is acknowledged to be one of the greatest poets of the Persian language... In this work he brilliantly describes the doctrines of Ibn 'Arabī and his school which had such a profound influence on all aspects of Persian life. It is by no means simply a commentary on Ibn 'Arabī, but as Hossein Nasr points out in his preface, 'it is the fruit of vision made possible by spiritual discipline and the attainment of sanctity.'" --Back cover

Ces poèmes célèbrant les femmes, la beauté, l'ivresse et le néant lèvent le voile sur la figure de ce savant et astronome perse né en 1048 dans une société dominée par le dogmatisme musulman, épris de liberté, conscient de la durée dérisoire des hommes--[Memento]
