Description

Of Light and delight...

"If a poem have a genius, it will force its own reception in the world..." John Dryden

A celebration of this world famous mystical masterpiece as translated and adapted by the suffolk born anglo - irish genius Edward FitzGerald 1809 - 1883 who passes on to us the perennial wisdom of many voices from the Rig Veda,Upanishads, Zoroaster, Omar Khayya'm, the Koran, Homer, Buddhism, the Bible, William Shakespeare and Blake, George Herbert, Attar, Hafiz, Rumi, John Dryden and Keats and so many more "I hear those voices that will not be drowned" George Crabbe

Little wonder therefore that it has sold millions of copies around the world since it was first published in 1859 and that a first edition can command a price of £45,000.

As a celebration of universal first principles it guides us through all four levels of understanding from the literal, through the allegorical / symbolic, through the moral to the mystical by means of thesis, anti-thesis to glorious synthesis being a deep yet at the same time a very funny and entertaining poem for all ages - meeting us wherever we are at - awakening / expanding / liberating our intuitive awareness as we connect with our soul's universality - The Light Within - All embracing Unity, Truth, Harmony and Beauty - PEACE - The Smile of the Spirit.

"The eloquence of quatrain is the completion of sublimity" Persian Saying
