I wanted to like this, but I didn't. I suppose I expect more in terms of rythmic devices and clever use of English - that is the fault of the translation though, and not the original work... More footnotes on the original would have helped. I'm sure there must be better translations.

HASH(0x96111510) out of 5 stars A Disappointment 27 Mar. 2014
By Juliette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read quotes from Hafiz in the works of other authors which were intriguing enough to get me to purchase this book. It is a long, exaggerated description of unrequited love. The translation is poorly done. The rhymes are stretched beyond credulity. There are jarring anachronisms. This was absolutely a waste of time and money. If I could give it zero stars I would.

HASH(0x95bf6798) out of 5 stars Hafiz Kindlized 6 Sept. 2012
By Michael H. Benton - Published on Amazon.com

I have always enjoyed the writing of Hafiz. The Kindle format is nicely paginated for easy viewing. So many classics are thrown together for e-readers, it was a pleasure to read one that is a bit more professional.

HASH(0x95bf6ccc) out of 5 stars Questionable Translation? 15 Jan. 2013
By Mark Nenadov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hafiz (or Hafez) is a 14th century Persian poet. This is a modern translation of 100 of his odes. He seems to have been quite a libertine, especially by 14th century standards!

I'm not sure I like this translation. On a poetic level, it just doesn't flow well. While they are occasional bright spots, it generally has the feel of 4th grade poetry.

I also have reason to suspect that this translation is rather loose in diverting from the text. Of course, I don't have the expertise, familiarity with the work of Hafiz, or the resources to verify that 100%.

I plan to read a different translation of Hafiz's poems, probably Richard Le Gallienne's translation). I'm absolutely certain it will be a better translation.

I love the essence of teachings is not lost in spite of rhymes. It's a wonder to be able to put words without putting the personal opinion while translating the inner meaning of mystics. I would read it again. Thank you. KK

No matter what religion you profess, the word and wisdom from God is the same. Even if you don't profess a God, the philosophy in these pages are right for all who desire to live a good and fruitful life.
