The conference of the birds, Mantiq ut-Tair: a philosophical religious poem in prose

Overview: The acclaimed translation of a magnificent work of Persian poetry-now updated with new material. Composed in the twelfth century in northeastern Iran, Farid Attar's great mystical poem is among the most significant of all works of Persian literature. A marvelous, allegorical rendering of the Islamic doctrine of Sufism, it describes the pilgrimage of the world's birds in search of their ideal king, the Simorgh bird, and the arduous journey they take to reach him. This masterly translation preserves the poem's rhymed couplet form and nuances of language. Here is the great 12th-century mystical poem in an inexpensive unabridged translation.

  • "An allegorical poem about the search of the world's birds for the perfect king illustrates the mystical beliefs of sufism."
  • "First written in the 12th century, Conference of the Birds is an allegory of extreme measures for extreme times -- the story of birds seeking a king is the story of all of us seeking God. Like the birds, we may be excited for the journey, until we realize that we must give up our fears and hollow desires, that our journey will be long and hard. Like the duck, we may not wish to leave the water. Like the nightingale, we may want to stay close to our roses.Direct and to the point, Masani''s translation, made in the early part of the 19th century, is particularly apropos for our early 21st centur."@en
