Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies. Translated from the Persian by Richard Jeffrey Newman. "In this compelling translation of the Iranian epic, Richard Jeffrey Newman has given a new generation of readers access to this classic tale of politics, devotion, war and peace-making. Corrupt kings, rebel princes, dragon-sorcerers, and resourceful cooks travel through this poetic history of an ancient and storied civilization. Newman's own narrative and lyric gifts as a poet make this a must-have volume"—Kazim Ali.
