He is one of the persia 's greatest poets and humanitarians...one of his verses about human spirit has been used worldwide and in Nasa's message to the other space and in President Obama's message to Iranians for the Persian New Year - Noruz........Viva Saadi.

Gulistān and Būstān by Sheikh Muṣleḥ- ʾiddin Saʿdī
http://nwhyte.livejournal.com/1863191...

I got hold of a nineteenth-century English translation facing the original Persian, not only of Būstān [بستان, The Orchard] but also of Gulistān [گلستان , The Rose Garden], the two great works by the thirteenth century Persian poet normally known in English as Saʿdī or Saadi, but referred to in my edition as spelt in my subject line above. He was an exact contemporary of Rūmī, whose work I had greatly enjoy

Sadi bu eseri yazma sebebini şöyle açıklıyor: “Dünyanın her yerini gezdim, dolaştım; sayısız insanla günler geçirdim;her yerde kendimce faydalar buldum; elimden geldiğince her harmandan bir başak topladım.". Gezdiği, gördüğü ve şahit olduğu her türlü olayı akıcı kısa hikayelerle biçimlendirerek insanlara ders çıkarmaları ve güzel öğütler halinde sunulmuş muhteşem bir eser. Sadece bir kaç tane alıntı:

"Dost, dostunun elini onun perişanlığında, çaresizliğinde tutan kimsedir.."

گلستان را فقط، خوانده ام و خیلی لذت برده ام. طنز بعضا تلخ، صراحت گزنده و ریزبینی در نگاه اجتماعی چیزهایی هستند که به عنوان ویژگی های خاص گلستان در خاطرم مانده اند. نیک آهنگ کوثر در یکی از مصاحبه هایش گفته بود وقتی دبستانی بوده دیکته اش ضعیف بوده و پدرش مجبورش می کرده از روی گلستان املا بنویسد. واین کار به غیر از آن که جدا در بهبود وضع دیکته اش موثر بوده، چنان در تقویت و پرورش قوه طنازی اش کارگر افتاده که هنوز که هنوز است معتقد است که خیلی از کاریکاتورهایش را با الهام مستقیم یا غیر مستقیم از گلست ...more

Sadi Şirazi'nin birbirinden güzel, kısa ve tüyler ürperten kıssalarını içeren toplama eseri.

Nice Work.

Kitaptaki hikayelerin çoğunun inandırıcılığı yok. Verilmek istenen düşünce ve özlü sözler iyi ancak hikayeler zorlama ve kitabın yazıldığı zaman yaşayanları inandırcak cinsten.Örneğin adamın birisi çölde ölürken kumlara yazı yazıyor, adamın kurumuş cesedini bulanlar yazıyı okuyorlar gibi. Kısaca ananemin biz çocukken anlattığı hikayelere benziyorlar. O zaman inandırıcı idiler, şimdi ise komik.

Beyan yayınlarının bizlere sunduğu,tasarımıyla oldukça göz dolduran bir kitaptı.Masal diyarından kopmuş bir o kadar da eğitici bir eser.Herkesin okumasını tavsiye ederim.
