Khusro, The Indian Orpheus, A hundred Odes by Khalid Hameed Shaida

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Affluent and playful, Khusro, the thirteenth century poet and musician who would become known throughout India and Middle East - and now the world - is a persian mystic who loved melody, words and romance. His interpretation of love's musings is frevolous, fanciful and lovely proving that love and poetry walk hand in hand - always have and always will.

With a classical vision of the Persian mystic and poetic experience, the translator, Khalid Hameed Shaida, provides readers with yet another translation of a lesser-known Persian favorite. Heartfelt, playful and idealistic, he whips the current of romance to timeless bliss and swirls the tides in our favor. He recreates a world we all wish to embrace, one of accord, decency and love.
