ويس و رامين

review ويس و رامين ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub To heroic couplets the closest metrical euivalent of the Persian by the poet and scholar Dick Davi. Solid English and accesible writing with helpful notes and commentary But I supremely disliked the protagonists They were vain fickle and utterly absorbed in their own selves

review ويس و رامين

review ويس و رامين ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Between 1050 and 1055 in rhyming couplets This remarkable work has now been superbly translated in. I don t remember any why I put this book into my reading list But every now and then I would have the urge to read classical literature stemming from outside of the Western World such as the Mah bh rata The Tibetan Book of the Dead and Shahnameh Vis and R min is just another one of these books And I must say this was a very enjoyable read which was surprisingly unexpectedThe version I read was translated by Dick Davis who was also the translator of the version of Shahnameh two years ago This translation is written in pentameter couplets which provided a very rhythmic feel when one is reading it I couldn t help but use my fingers every now and then when I bump into a particular line that seemed off only to realise that the line indeed consists of ten syllables since I felt like I have been reading every line with a particular melody inside my head Some epic poems were translated into prose but this one was translated into poetry which I must say is rather impressiveThe story is essentially a love triangle between Vis a princess R min a prince and King Mobad Vis was promised to Mohad before she was even born King Mobad once saw Vis s mother Shahru and was immensely attracted by her beauty and therefore asked her to marry him However she was already married so instead she promised that she would give him a daughter in case she would produce one There s many of events which I wouldn t summarise here but essentially these characters change their minds often Vis cannot make up her mind whether she would remain with her husband Mobad or go with R min R min is the same who until the last minutes doesn t know whether he would pursue Vis or be content with his newly found wife Gol And Mobad swings back and forth between a lovestruck husband to a sadistic jailer In any case I definitely enjoyed reading this one I blasted through it surprisingly rather fast It probably helped that I was also uite broadly familiar with the various geographical locations that were mentioned in the poem since these were places in Iran that I have passed through a few years ago when I visited I recommend this book especially if you re looking for something that is not in the typical Western canon but is rather accessible I give it 4 out of 5 starsSee my other book reviews here
