Visions of Love: Sufi Poetry of the Pashtuns
A “coffee table”presentation of poetry and photographs ideal as a gift with sepia tint photographs of of modern-day Pashtuns in Afghanistan and Pakistan on every other page. This book is a celebration of the poetry which forms the core of the deeply spiritual and expressive oral culture of the Pushtuns. The poetry in this volume is a selection from the work of their most popular poet – Abdur Rahman Baba. The English translator has attempted to free the verse from the constraints of rhyme and metre to communicate its essence.
