"The colloquial and accessible voice Hakak and Wolak tease out of these ghazals reveals the poet to be passionate, rebellious, and unerringly drunk with the kind of desire found only in Shakespeare's sonnets, or in the best of Shelley or Keats. . . . The emphasis in these translations, however, has been on the quality of language as it makes the transition to English, and on the essential Hafezian voice. Hafez, the lover and seeker of the sublime, comes out in lines which speak personally and immediately." —Naton Leslie
