Hafiz's Little Book of Life with Gary Gach

Classics of world literature require fresh versions and Hafiz (aka Hafez – 14th century) is no exception. Hafiz’s Little Book of Life showcases more than 250 selections from his lifework. Also included is a vivid portrait of his life and times, translators’ notes, an extensive glossary, a bibliography, and an appendix on Hafiz as an oracle.

The book’s five themes chart a map for the soul: the state of the world, the power of wine, love, in all its forms and phases (and gender fluidities), timeless, ancient, living wisdom, and fruition, opening the eye within the heart. it deepens our understanding of the people of Iran today, and their cultural and historical contexts.

Gary Gach has cotranslated three books of poetry from Korean by Ko Un. His anthology What Book!?—Buddha Poems from Beat to Hiphop, received an American Book Award from Before Columbus Foundation. He’s also author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism and Pause, Breathe, Smile.
