Book of the Day – A Year with Hafiz

Hope you’re having a great weekend!  I found this in my mailbox yesterday, and thought you’d like to see.  It’s a book I received from Penguin!

 A Year with Hafiz

A Year with Hafiz: Daily Contemplations by Hafiz

Release Date: 2011-11-02

A year’s worth of ruminations from one of the world’s most revered literary and spiritual teachers.

The poems of Hafiz are not literary remnants from a remote past but masterpieces filled with cherished and timeless wisdom. With learned insight and a delicate hand, Daniel Ladinsky explores the many emotions addressed in these verses. H is renderings, presented here in 365 poignant poems-including a section based on the translations of Hafiz by Ralph Waldo Emerson-capture the compelling wisdom of one of Islam’s most revered artistic and religious voices.

Intimate and often spiritual, the poems are beautifully sensuous, playful, wacky, profound, and full of wonderful wit and humor, and provide guidance for everyday life, as well as reflection points to help readers grow as individuals.
