Salaman and Absal, by Nuruddin Jami



Salaman and Absal (By Jami)

This is a translation of an allegorical Sufi poem by the Persian Sufi poet Jami. Nur ad-Din Abd ar-Rahman Jami, (b. 1441 d. 1492), lived in what is today Afghanistan and Uzebekistan. The translator, Edward Fitzgerald, is best known for his translation of the Rubayyat of Omar Khayyam. This book has not been reprinted since it was published in the early 20th century, although the poem has been reprinted in conjunction with other Fitzgerald works.
