    I think the Persian culture is so rich and vibrant with art, poetry and beauty, and yet no matter how enchanting, it's still mysterious, because of the language barrier and closed culture of Iran. I really want to read about their culture and carpets, legends, poetry and recipes but there aren't any books that I found interesting or of a whole collection such as Hafiz poetry, in Arabic or English. They are always like little quotes.

They are always like little quotes. This book, for example, is like a tasting cocktail, you sample the food but you are never full, it includes tidbits of poetry, art, and explanation about poets, male and female. I LOVE the names Tahmina and Thuraya. I always say, if I have twins, I'll call them that. Still, I'm glad I bought the book, because it introduced me to new poets that I can google.

    Persian Poetry is the center of LOVE... Persian Poetry expresses LOVE fully... In the Persian language - the pronunciation of the words, connection and fluency of the words, are amazing...

    This was a gorgeous selection of poetry. Just gorgeous. I am so glad that I picked it up from the library. A selection of Persian love poetry from different eras, accompanied by images of Persian art. The artwork was all beautiful and intricate and every poem was a delight. It is so rare to come across a collection where there is not a single dud poem, but this was one of those rare treasures. It was the perfect book to keep by my bedside and read a few pages each night. Just captivatingly stunnin This was a gorgeous selection of poetry. Just gorgeous.

    I took it to a romanesque role playing game set in the Ottoman empire and it helped me a lot to let my character express her feelings. It is beautiful poetry, too.

    I've always been curious to learn more about Persian poetry and this book was a good introduction to it. Persian poems tend to be short and often with almost fleeting imagery. It takes some time to absorb the feeling of it, and having the poetry paired with relevant Persian paintings (with explanations) from the British Museum allowed you to do that lingering and enjoy two forms of art from this ancient land. The print quality is excellent. Here is an example: Why do you ask me the color of his e I've always been curious to learn more about Persian poetry and this book was a good introduction to it.

    A lovely little book made of small poems and beautiful illustrations. Received as a gift from an Iranian friend after a visit to the V&A Iran exhibition. All ties nicely together, beautiful short poems which caries you away to this beautiful country suffering so much.

    Some poems are too specific to the culture to relate to, but others cut to the core. The pages and illustrations are beautiful

    Wonderful - would give it 5 stars but quite a few of the original Persian poems are incompletely included. It would have been nice to see the whole poems themselves.

    عاشقانه ها کتابی با حجم کم و نفاست زیاد است. در وهله ی اوّل باید به آقای فیلی زاده، صفحه آرا و طراح روی جلد آن تبریک گفت که بسیار جذب کننده است. تابلو ها و آثار و چاپ اونها هم بسیار عالی است. فقط اشعارانتخاب شده خانم سرخوش کرتیس به نظر می رسد با سلیقه ی خاصّی انتخاب شده، مثلاً از شعرای طراز اوّلی مثل بیدل دهلوی، صائب تبریزی، کلیم کاشانی و ناصر خسرو هیچ شعری در مجموعه نیست در حالی که از شعرای طراز دوّمی مثل نسیبی و مهستی اشعاری آمده است و منتخب ظاهرا ادبیات فارسی را صرفاً محمل عشق زمینی یا اعتراض عاشقانه ها کتابی با حجم کم و نفاست زیاد است. در وهله ی اوّل باید به آقای فیلی زاده، صفحه آرا و طراح روی جلد آن تبریک گفت که بسیار جذب کننده است. تابلو ها و آثار و چاپ اونها هم بسیار عالی است. فقط اشعارانتخاب شده خانم سرخوش کرتیس به نظر می رسد با سلیقه ی خاصّی انتخاب شده، مثلاً از شعرای طراز اوّلی مثل بیدل دهلوی، صائب تبریزی، کلیم کاشانی و ناصر خسرو هیچ شعری در مجموعه نیست در حالی که از شعرای طراز دوّمی مثل نسیبی و مهستی اشعاری آمده است و منتخب ظاهرا ادبیات فارسی را صرفاً محمل عشق زمینی یا اعتراض زنان فرض کرده است. در حالیکه قله های ادبیات ما رو مضامین معرفتی تشکیل میده. جا داشته که نسخه ای به این نفیسی که واقعا زیباست، اشعار منتخب آن تمثیل گر میراث ادبی و اخلاقی و عرفانی و تصوّف ادب ایرانی هم باشد.و

    A beautiful introductory collection. If only the painting details are not as convoluted and written simpler. So far—the Persian poets, works, and their select biographies lived up to the hype of history of literature. Certainly, they have a universe of their own, and had exerted tremendous influence on world poets like Goethe, Balagtas, Rimbaud, and Pound, including also the popular translator and poet, Robert Fitzgerald.

    Very beautiful selection of Persian poems, very nicely presented by the British Museum. I would recommend it for beginners in Persian poetry, or people that would like to have an approach to Persian poetry but don't know any Persian.
