Borrowed Ware: Medieval Persian Epigrams

An essential collection of epigrams by poets from the 'classic' period of Persian literature. Borrowed Ware is a fascinating introduction to a literature that is little known in the West, and offers insight into an extraordinary way of life, long vanished.

Translated to English by Dick Davis, a poet in his own right and the world's foremost English-speaking scholar of medieval Persian poetry. His prodigious scholarship of Persian poetry has enabled him to select a wide range of poems, from both famous and little-known poets.
