The Gulistan of Saadi: In Persian with English Translation by Saadi Shirazi

One of the Greatest Persian Books of All Time!

Born in Shiraz, Iran, in 1184, Saadi is considered one of the greatest Persian poets of all time. Saadi's two books, the poetic Bostan, or Orchard (in 1257), and the prose Gulistan, the Rose Garden (in 1258), are regarded as supreme accomplishments of Persian literature. The Persian literature and culture are deeply indebted to Saadi's publications.

The Gulistan (The Rose Garden) is a landmark of Persian literature, and one of the most influential works of prose in Persian. Written in 1258 CE, it is considered as one of the greatest medieval Persian poets. The Gulistan is a collection of stories and poems, just as a rose-garden is a collection of roses.
The translation appearing in this book is provided by Edward Rehatsek in 1888. This bilingual book can be useful for students and enjoyable for poetry lovers of any age. Not only will poems and stories improve your Persian language, but they'll help your understanding of Persian culture. Students will have ample opportunities to enrich their Persian learning experience and extend a range of language abilities through exploring these poems.

The English - Persian Glossary at the end of the book can help Persian students better understand keywords in the poems.
