The poet has a demanding duty, to be succinct yet more expansive in meaning than the prose writer. To meet the bar in translation adds an additional challenge. Mr Pendlebury surpasses it.

The foreword and afterword are also very much worth reading.

I read this book alongside the original poetry written in Persian. The problem is that no matter how good a translator is, once Persian poetry is translated into English it loses its essence and rhythmic value and becomes somewhat stale. I loved the poems in Persian, not so much its translation in English.

کتابی خسته کننده تر از حدیقه نخوندم

با وزنی بسیار حرص در آور و قافیه های ناجور که فقط و فقط از عهده پیرمرد غرغرویی به اسم سنایی غزنوی بر می آید.
سنایی معلم مولانا است

حدیقةالحقیقه متنی مربوط به اواخر قرن ششم و اوایل قرن هفتم است، شنیده ام متن کهنی در کتابخانه لیدن هلند نیز پیدا شده

باب نخست در توحید باریتعالی

اینهمه علم جسم مختصر است، علم رفتن به راه حق دگرست
علم آن کش نظر ادقّ(مشکلتر) باشد، علم رفتن به راه حق باشد
سوی آنکس که عقل و دین دارد، نان و گفتار گندمین دارد
چیست این راه را نشان و دلیل، این نشان از کلیم پرس و خلیل
ور ز من پرسی ای برادر هم، باز گویم صریح نی مبهم
چیست زاد چنین ره ای غافل، حق بدیدن بریدن از باطل
روی سویِ جهان حی کردن، عقبهٔ جاه زیر پی کردن

My exposure to Sufism consists of the movie Baraka, some proverbs, and Rumi's works. Sanai's work was an interesting addition to this collection. The imagery had some flashes of brilliance but overall the work was a little too dictatorial and dry for my tastes. Then again the translator admits he did a pretty liberal translation only representing about 1/30th of the original work. Regardless of its stylistic merits though, like all Sufi works this one resonated with me. I wish I had the opportun ...more

Not my favorite English rendition of Sanai's poetry; it doesn't quite soar. But you can still feel the life and glimpse sparkling truths. If you already know and love the wisdom of Hakim Sanai, then I strongly recommend this as a solid, balanced English translation. But if you haven't yet been hooked by Sanai's amazing poetry, I'd read something less complete and more poetically entrancing. A good short sampler is The Book of Everything, translated by Priya Hemenway.

“Once one is one, no more, no less:
error begins with duality;
unity knows no error.

There's no duality in the world of love.
What's all this talk of 'you' and 'me'?
How can you fill a cup that's full already?”
