The great Persian poet Hafez is so beloved in Iran that almost every family there keeps his "Divan" close at hand. For some fifteen years, esteemed American poet and author Robert Bly has worked with the great Islamic scholar Leonard Lewisohn to produce this translation, which for the first time captures Hafez's nimbleness, his fierce humor, his astonishing range of thought, and his delight in love--enabling English speakers to fully appreciate the true genius of this master of the "ghazal" form, one of the greatest inventions in the history of poetry.
