    Cannot agree more with Saadi on this one! 🙂

      Dear Mr. Brigido Anaya,
      I possess an English translation of Saadi’s Gulistan. I don’t know whether it’s the full one or not, for I don’t know Farsi, however it is not a bad one at all. I could share it with you. Just let me know the email I could send you the pdf file.

      Best regards,

      Maria

        Thank you dear, I am familiar with Saadi, and many other Persian poets, like Rumi, Omar Khayyam, Hafiz,, Abd al-Qadir Gilani, Abu, ʾl-Qasim Ferdowsi Tusi, Mansur al-Hallaj, Rābi’a bint Ka’b al-Quzdārī, Farīd ud-Dīn Attar, Shams-i-Tabrīzī, etc.

        Yes translations are tricky, there is many translations out there that do not do justice to the poet, still can’t find a Khayyam’s English translation as good as one I got in Spanish, for example. And there is so many mediocre translations of Rumi…I got a Persian friend Zee (His nickname) who tells me: Not until you learn Farsi will be able to appreciate Persian poetry! 🙂

        Thank you for so useful information. I’m interested in Persian literature very much. Especially in Persian Tales. However, due to the fact that I don’t know the language I face a difficulty in my search. The names you’ve mentioned will be very helpful for me!

        You’re very lucky to have a Persian friend! At least he could tell you what is worth reading or not. And he is right concerning the poetry. It’s impossible to be translated. )))
