Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Borrowed Ware', Dick Davis brings together a wide range of shorter poems by poets from the classic' period of Persian literature. It makes a fascinating introduction to a literature that is little known in the West, and incidentally provides insights into a vanished and extraordinary way of life.

The book contains a lucid and entertaining introduction, and informative headnotes on each of the 68 poets whose work is included.

After graduating from King's College Cambridge, Dick Davis worked as a teacher in various places around the world including Iran, where he lived and worked for eight years. He was Northern Arts Literary Fellow at Durham and Newcastle (1985-7), and he now teaches Persian at Ohio State University. Borrowed Ware' is published simultaneously with his new collection of original poetry, Touchwood'.

Synopsis:

Dick Davis's verse translations of short poems by numerous Persian poets, including Rumi and Hafez.
