"Dick Davis [is] our pre-eminent translator from the Persian...Thanks to Davis's magnificent translation, Ferdowsi and the "Shahnameh" live again in English." -Michael Dirda, Washington Post "Accessible...A poet himself, Davis brings to his translation a nuanced awareness of Ferdowsi's subtle rhythms and cadences. His "Shahnameh" is rendered in an exquisite blend of poetry and prose, with none of the antiquated flourishes that so often mar translations of epic poetry." -Reza Aslan (author of "Zealot"), New York Times Books Review "Davis's wonderful translation will show Western readers why Ferdowsi's masterpiece is one of the most revered and most beloved classics in the Persian world." -Khaled Hosseini, author of "The Kite Runner" "A magnificent accomplishment . . . [Davis's translation] is not only the fullest representation of Ferdowsi's masterpiece in English but the best." -"The New York Sun" "Reader-friendly...essential reading" - Kirkus Review "Marvelous . . . It represents the best of Persian culture." -Azar Nafisi, from the forewordReseña del editor:
Originally composed for the Samanid princes of Khorasan in the 10th century, "Shahnameh" is one of the most important pieces of Persian literature. This prodigious narrative tells the story of pre-Islamic Iran, beginning in the mythic time of Creation and continuing forward to the Arab invasion in the seventh century. The sweep and psychological depth of the "Shahnameh" is nothing less than magnificent. Now one of the greast translators of Persian poetry, Dick Davis, presents Ferdowsi's masterpiece in an elegant combination of prose and verse.
