Considered by Rumi to be "the master" of Sufi mystic poetry, Attar is best known for this epic poem, a magnificent allegorical tale about the soul's search for meaning. He recounts the perilous journey of the world's birds to the faraway peaks of Mount Qaf in search of the mysterious Simorgh, their king. Attar's beguiling anecdotes and humor intermingle the sublime with the mundane, the spiritual with the worldly, while his poem models the soul's escape from the mind's rational embrace.Sholeh Wolp re-creates for modern readers the beauty and timeless wisdom of the original Persian, in contemporary English verse and poetic prose.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: AttarPublisher: W.
