Reading mystical lyric : the case of Jalal al-Din Rumi by Fatemeh Keshavarz( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jalal al-Din Rumi, a towering figure in the Persian-speaking world, is currently the most widely published poet in English translation. Yet despite the popularity of his verse, the majority of scholarship on his work focuses not on Rumi's poetry but on his contributions as a mystic. Fatemeh Keshavarz's pioneering study is the first extensive critical examination of this vast, dynamic body of literature. Through close readings of the Divan, his collection of more than 35,000 lyric verses, she explores Rumi's extraordinary popular and critical literary success."--BOOK JACKET. "Rather than simply catalogue the images and concepts used by Rumi, Keshavarz employs a new critical approach that she describes as "observing the poems in action." This approach, based equally on classical Persian sources and on modern western critical thought, demonstrates how the poet's use of paradox, manipulation of silence, innovation in rhythm, and experimentation with imagery result in a literary enactment of love rather than a mere portrayal of it."--BOOK JACKET
Recite in the name of the red rose : poetic sacred making in twentieth-century Iran by Fatemeh Keshavarz( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recite the Name of the Red Rose introduces Western readers to constructions of the sacred in twentieth-century Iranian poetry. Sifting through the lives and writings of modern and classical poets, Fatemeh Keshavarz provides an unprecedented systematic examination of the array of religious impulses to recent Persian verse. Viewing poetry as the site of the emergence of the self and the sacred, she confirms that sanctification is not static in its forms but continuously in flux and that the poetic modes used to articulate the sanctified are equally fluid."--Jacket
Lyrics of life : Sa'di on love, cosmopolitanism and care of the self by Fatemeh Keshavarz( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This imaginative and accessible study of the lyrical, humorous, social and educational aspects of classical Persian poetry focuses on the works of the master medieval poet Sa'di of Shiraz (d. 1291), one of the funniest, most influential and lyrical figures in classical Persian poetry. Sa'di, a prominent ethicist and a devout teacher of virtues, stands out for his worldliness, his practical teachings, and his love for living a wholesome life, as well as for his signature elegance and artistry that has compelled critics to call his lyrics perfectly polished diamonds. In a language deliberately free of technical jargon, Keshavarz argues for the versatility of Sa'di's poetic voice and portrays his notion of love as open to multiple perspectives including homoerotic aesthetics. She brings to life the worldly wisdom that kept the lyrical, adventurous, and ethical legacy of Sa'di fresh and effective through the passage of time. Key Features: Includes hundreds of verses in translation, making it ideal for use by students *Explores the connections between poetry and lived experience *Highlights the role of classical Persian poetry as the 'silk road of the imagination', connecting many polities and diverse ways of life *Examines the poetic strategies that give Sa'di's substantive and sumptuous lyrics their unique status
