The Illuminated Hafiz

Vivid translations by Coleman Barks, Robert Bly, Omid Safi, Meher Baba, and others combine with Michael and Saliha Green's stunning illustrations to bring the immortal poetry of the great Persian master Hafiz to life “There is this matter of the light in my eyes. If you want to know the Friend, don’t expect elegant arguments! Demand a blessing from one who gives you joy.” —Hafiz (tr. Barks) “Hafiz is without peer!” exclaimed Goethe. Known as “The Tongue of the Hidden Mysteries,” Shams al-Din Muhammad Hafiz of Shiraz is the most revered of Persian poets. When the Sun of Infinite Reality dawned in his being, he poured forth mystic verse so sublime it touched the hearts of kings and commoners alike. Hafiz’s poems of intimate divine love spread through the East in his lifetime, then into the West, influencing such luminaries as Emerson, Brahms, Queen Victoria, Nietzsche, and Garcia Lorca. Today, nearly 700 years after his death, the unmatched genius and bold wit of Hafiz continues to ignite hearts and intoxicate souls everywhere. The Illuminated Hafiz brings together vivid translations by Coleman Barks, Robert Bly, Omid Safi, Meher Baba, Peter Booth, and others with the luminous art of Michael and Saliha Green, weaving them into a stunning contemporary presentation in the tradition of classical Persian illuminated manuscripts and unveiling the mysteries of the path of love. Come, raise a cup! Join with Hafiz and his incomparable love poems in a holy revel on the journey into light.

The Illuminated Table  the Prosperous House

The Illuminated Table, the Prosperous House brings together fourteen articles by researchers from Turkey and a number of European countries such as France, Germany and Poland. These articles deal with two of the major aspects of material culture, namely food and drink on the one hand, and housing on the other. In no society is it indifferent how people eat and drink, dress and dwell; to the contrary these matters are always highly charged on the symbolic level. Ottoman society had achieved a high degree of coherence in many of its aspects, including material culture. Viewed from the opposite angle, this common material culture may count as one of the indicators that made the empire''s remarkably uniform social structure apparent even to the casual viewer. From Sarajevo to Damascus, coffee was drunk from the same kinds of cups, while everywhere, people received their friends seated on raised platforms decked out with rugs and cushions. Moreover the slow and therefore less obvious changes in material culture often had a more profound impact on people''s lives than short-term and more ''noisy'' political conflicts. The transition of the Ottomans from the world of early modern statehood toward modernity was backed up by multiple transformations in the everyday lives of many men and women. Overall, the urban populations of the empire from the sixteenth century onwards developed an increasing degree of sophistication and differentiation in their ways of living. People found new ways of enjoying their food, putting together their domestic environments or presenting themselves in public. During the last few decades the various remnants of Ottoman material life have attracted growing public attention. Ottoman cuisine and vernacular architecture are cherished not only by experts, but also by Turkish urban dwellers increasingly proud of their cultural heritage, to say nothing of tourists. But even so, serious research in these matters has been slow to develop. It is the aim of the present volume to show what avenues research has taken to date, point out the numerous unexploited or under-exploited primary sources and thus to advance our understanding of this important aspect of Ottoman history.

Indian Art at Delhi 1903

The volume is a unique work of documentation of nineteenth-century Indian craftsmanship. The text is enriched with graphic representation of rare specimens of Indian artistry. Its usefulness as gaze-tteer and an ethnogra-phical dictionary makes it invaluable for the students engaged in research of the history of craft and industry in India. The volume is reprinted with a scholarly intro-duction by Dr. Narayani Gupta after eighty years of its first publication. This was first published as a Catalogue and Guide to the Indian Art Exhibition held at Delhi to coincide with the Durbar of 1902-03. Its importance as a valuable book of reference and as a work of scholarship could hardly be appreciated at that time, though the author could visualize its possible future as a simple and practical account of the note-worthy art industries of India. Here, an attempt is made for the first time to associate Indian art-works in a systematic sequence, under certain classes, divisions and sections. The author's aim has primarily been to afford descriptions by which the articles might be severally identified, rather than to furnish traditions and historic details regarding them.
