Ahmed Ali, the distinguished Pakistani novelist, poet, critic, and diplomat, presents this elegant and poetic translation in a contemporary and living voice. On each page, the original Arabic and the translated English sit side by side, encouraging the reader to draw from both texts.
Professor Ali also includes notes where necessary, providing the full meaning of each word and phrase. Without distorting the English, Ali, a highly regarded author in his own right, renders the poetry of the original Arabic into lines of elegance and rhythm.
It also departs from traditional translations in that it gives more refined and differentiated shades of important concepts.
