Review:

"Robert understands the wild assertions of Hafez and his transparency. Robert's translations have the nimbleness and daring of the lover. This is the book we have been waiting for."--Coleman Barks

Robert understands the wild assertions of Hafez and his transparency. Robert s translations have the nimbleness and daring of the lover. This is the book we have been waiting for. --Coleman Barks"

This is an amazingly meaningful translation of Hafiz's poetry that I deeply appreciate. . . . Having understood the original text in both its technical and non-technical senses, they have presented us with a translation shorn of jargon.----Baha al-Din Khurramshahi, author of Hafiznama, a two-volume Persian commentary on Hafez's poetry, Tehran, Iran
