Jami: Yusuf And Zulaikha

Described in the Qur'an as 'the most beautiful of stories', the romance of Yusuf and Zulaikha is a theme to which Eastern poets have constantly returned. In Jami's deeply moving, thought-provoking, and highly entertaining version, it finds its greatest expression. The story explores the intimate and many-levelled relationship between love and beauty, and is the most celebrated of all Jami's works. This entirely new prose translation combines a faithful reflection of the spirit of the original, with the compulsive readability of a good novel.
