Sufi Aesthetics: Beauty, Love, and the Human Form in the Writings of Ibn 'Arabi and 'Iraqi, by Cyrus Ali Zargar

Sufi Aesthetics: Beauty, Love, and the Human Form in the Writings of Ibn 'Arabi and 'Iraqi, by Cyrus Ali Zargar

€32.00 Sale price

This book is grounded in a profound mastery and understanding of the Arabic and Persian texts of the Sufi poets.

Sufi Aesthetics argues that the interpretive keys to erotic Sufi poems and their medieval commentaries lie in understanding a unique perceptual experience.

It is accessible for thoughtful readers or the general reading public who would love to learn about Sufi mysticism both for intellectual stimulation and personal enlightenment.

Less bound by logic and the expectations of reason, dreams seem to create their own rules.

The final chapter is entitled "The Amorous Lyric as Mystical Language : Union of the Sacred and the Profane."
