Translated from the Uzbek by Dennis Daly.
"Dark-eyed ones come, revealing their inner selves. Alisher Navoiy, or Nizam-al-Din 'Ali-Shir, a fifteenth century poet, mystic and artist, is reawakened in Daly's sublime translations. True to their spirit yet infused with a modern idiom, these ghazals tremble on the tongue, sparkle on the sheaf. A body in flames fires a path through the wilderness, a pinch of skin reminds how close we remain. Here at the source, a cloud hovers. Delectable, delicate, dangerous...finally, a denouement."—Marc Vincenz
