Book excerpt: The Persian epic that inspired Eric Clapton's unforgettable love song "Layla" and that Lord Byron called "the Romeo and Juliet of the East," in a masterly new translation A Penguin Classic The iconic love story of the Middle East, by a twelfth-century Persian poet who has been compared to Shakespeare for his subtlety, inventiveness, and dramatic force, Layli and Majnun tells of star-crossed lovers whose union is tragically thwarted by their families and whose passion continues to ripple out across the centuries. Theirs is a love that lasts a lifetime, and in Nezami's immortal telling, erotic longing blends with spiritual self-denial in an allegory of Sufi aspiration, as the amenities of civilization give way to the elemental wilderness, desire is sublimated into a mystical renunciation of the physical world, and the soul confronts its essence. This is a tour de force of Persian literature, in a translation that captures the extraordinary power and virtuosity of the original.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Encyclopedic in scope and heroically audacious, The Novel: An Alternative History is the first attempt in over a century to tell the complete story of our most popular literary form. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the novel did not originate in 18th-century England, nor even with Don Quixote, but is coeval with civilization itself. After a pugnacious introduction, in which Moore defends innovative, demanding novelists against their conservative critics, the book relaxes into a world tour of the pre-modern novel, beginning in ancient Egypt and ending in 16th-century China, with many exotic ports-of-call: Greek romances; Roman satires; medieval Sanskrit novels narrated by parrots; Byzantine erotic thrillers; 5000-page Arabian adventure novels; Icelandic sagas; delicate Persian novels in verse; Japanese war stories; even Mayan graphic novels. Throughout, Moore celebrates the innovators in fiction, tracing a continuum between these pre-modern experimentalists and their postmodern progeny. Irreverent, iconoclastic, informative, entertaining-The Novel: An Alternative History is a landmark in literary criticism that will encourage readers to rethink the novel.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a detailed study of the illustrations to Amir Khusrau's Khamsah, in which twenty discourses are followed by a brief parable, and four romances. Amir Khusrau (1253-1325) lived the greater part of adventurous life in Delhi; he composed in Persian, and also in Hindi. From the point of view of manuscript illustration, his most important work is his Khamsah (Quintet'). Khusrau's position as a link between cultures of Persia and India means that the early illustrated copies of the Khamsah have a particular interest. The first extant exemplar is from the Persian area in the late 14th century, but a case can be made that work was probably illustrated earlier in India.

Book excerpt: LAYLA AND MAJNUN: NIZAMI Translation & Introduction by Paul Smith It is impossible to underestimate the effect of Nizami's 'Layla and Majnun' on the world over the past 800 years. Many poets throughout this period have copied or been influenced by his story of the young lovers. Many Master-Poets besides Ibn Arabi, 'Attar, Rumi, Sadi, Hafiz and Jami have quoted from him or like him have used the story of the desperate lovers to illustrate how human love can be transformed into divine love through separation and longing. It is said that no one has painted a more perfect picture of women in Persian Literature than Nizami. Paul Smith has kept to the correct rhyme-structure of this long masnavi epic poem, while retaining the beauty of the poetry, the mystical meaning and simplicity of the form. He has included a long Introduction on his life and chapters on all of the works of this great Master/Poet. Selected Bibliography. Large format paperback... 7" x 10" 239 pages. COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH'S TRANSLATION OF HAFEZ'S 'DIVAN'. "It is not a joke... English version of all the ghazals of Hafez is a great feat of paramount importance. I am astonished. If he comes to Iran I will kiss the fingertips that wrote such a masterpiece inspired by the Creator of all. " Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran. "Superb translations. 99% Hafez 1% Paul Smith." Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator and knower of Hafiz's Divan off by heart. "I was very impressed with the beauty of these books." Dr. R.K. Barz. Faculty of Asian Studies, Australian National University. Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafez." Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author). Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of over 150 books of Sufi poets from the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages including Hafez, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, 'Attar, Sana'i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu'in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Omar Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre, Lalla Ded, Rahman Baba, Baba Latif and others, and his own poetry, fiction, plays, biographies and screenplays. www.newhumanitybooksbookheaven.com

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Laila adalah sang Kekasih, Majnun sang Pencinta, dan kisah Majnun adalah kisah sang Pencari yang terbakar kerinduan dan cinta. Tak ada yang lebih menyakitkan daripada kesedihan sejati karena perpisahan. Kisah Qais dan Laila tumbuh dari cinta yang murni dan polos, sebelum didera kemalangan. Tanpa restu orangtua, cinta mereka tak menemukan jalan terang. Perpisahan terpaksa ini membuat Qais tak berdaya hingga hilang akal, mengoyaknya dari ikatan dunia, dari identitasnya yang fana—mengubah Qais menjadi Majnun yang gila karena cinta. Penderitaan cinta Majnun ini, menjadi romansa legendaris yang disenandungkan selama berabad-abad, dari generasi ke generasi. Bahkan kaum sufi menganggap Laila & Majnun sebagai kisah cinta spiritual dan alegori pencarian jiwa akan Tuhan. Dari para kekasih yang putus asa, kita mendapatkan gambaran bagaimana cinta manusia dapat diubah menjadi cinta ilahiah melalui perpisahan dan kerinduan. Mahakarya yang ditulis Nizami Ganjavi pada akhir abad ke-12 ini abadi. Kisah Laila & Majnun menginspirasi berbagai karya besar dunia—termasuk Romeo & Juliet dari Shakespeare— serta telah diadaptasi ke berbagai media seperti film, musik, tarian, dan sebagainya. Pengantar Laila & Majnun adalah sebuah kisah cinta termasyhur dari Timur Tengah yang melambangkan cinta mistis kaum sufi. Kaum sufi adalah para pencinta Tuhan, yang berkelana di sahara dunia. Mereka melakukan perjalanan panjang dari pengalaman keterpisahan menuju persatuan dengan Tuhan. Bagi mereka, hubungan dengan Tuhan laksana hubungan pencinta dengan sang Kekasih. Kerinduan akan pertemuan dengan Kekasih membuat para sufi menjauhi dunia dan menenggelamkan diri pada misteri jiwa. Para pencinta Tuhan ini menganggap kisah Laila-Majnun sebagai kisah mereka sendiri; sebuah kisah cinta ruhani yang sarat simbol dan perlambang nan luar biasa. Sebuah kisah cinta yang gila dan mengguncangkan, yang dialami oleh Qais, yang cintanya pada Laila membuatnya menjadi sang Gila, Majnun. Laila adalah sang Kekasih, Majnun sang Pencinta, dan kisah Majnun adalah kisah sang Pencari yang terbakar kerinduan dan cinta. Dalam karya Nizami yang ditulis pada akhir abad ke-12 ini, hubungan Laila dan Majnun kaya akan simbolisme sufi. Misalnya ketika Majnun, yang terdorong oleh derita perpisahan, merangkak-rangkak mendekati kemah Laila. Seluruh pancaran fajar adalah Laila, namun sebatang lilin tegak menyala di depannya, lantaran terbakar oleh hasrat. Laila bagai taman terindah, sedangkan Majnun laksana obor kerinduan. Laila menanam serumpun mawar; Majnun menyiraminya dengan air matanya. Dari balik rambut hitamnya yang tergerai, satu lirikan Laila menyihir Majnun. Pemuda itu menjadi budaknya, bagai seorang darwis yang menari-nari di hadapannya. Dengan tangannya, Laila memegang secawan anggur, namun Majnun telah dibuat mabuk oleh aroma harumnya bahkan sebelum menyentuhnya.

Book excerpt: There lies an astounding spiritual depth in the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The Sufi Mysticism consists in endeavoring to reconcile the doctrines of all religions of the world through the philosophy of love. This piece of art is founded upon the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The current problem of terrorism, in the name of Jihad, has blighted the lives of many people. This book will reveal the true meaning of Jihad, as the doctrine of Sufism accentuated on inner Jihad, which means the closing of one's heart to the inner enemies of retaliation, envy and infidelity. This book also covers the foremost topics like the mystery of love, the status of women in Sufism, science of transformation, management lessons in Sufism, relevance of the Spiritual Master, controlling the Nafs and, most significantly, the Fifteen Fundamentals of life. The book covers the teachings of Persian Mystic "Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi" (in the world of Sufis, Rumi is the Emperor) and many other Sufi Mystics from the past. This book is a gift, an experience of the divine and therefore; it is recommended to be read periodically to reinforce the key messages of the Sufi Mystics in one's life. Remember, the path of spirituality is not easy for those who seek temporary happiness. It is a journey of hardship, and one must keep an enormous amount of patience and blind faith in the master's teachings to pursue permanent peace and happiness. Note: The author makes no claim to being either an Islamic Scholar or a Spiritual Master. The author is merely a seeker of love through the teachings of the Sufi Mystics.
