Bunting's Persia Cover

The February issue of Bookslut includes a review of Bunting’s Persia, translations from the Persian by Basil Bunting, edited by Don Share: “What kind of place is Bunting’s Persia? It is not quite the Persia of FitzGerald, nor is it the Sufi wonderland of recent Rumi translations, though it does bear a resemblance to both. There is plenty of wine, as well as meadows, nightingales, lovesickness, and desert caravans under the stars.” Read the full review here.
