This course is an introduction to the Classical Persian mystical poets through translations. We will focus on the 13th century Persian poet Jalaloddin Rumi, the leading figure in Persian mystical poetry, who fundamentally influenced Persian writing poets from the regions of the Ottoman Empire to the Indian subcontinent and Central Asia. We will also explore the works of other major classical Persian poets, including Attar, Sa’di and Hafez. Through close readings and explication of selected texts we will learn to appreciate their poetic art and imagery poets, and learn about major tenets of Sufism. The format of the course is lecture and class discussion. The grade is based on participation, a mid term and a final exam.
