The Tragedy of Sohrab and Rostam
Transalted by Jerome W. Clinton, professor of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. One of the most famous episodes from the great Persian classic known as the "SHAHNAMEH" or the book of Kings, is traslated into modern English verse. Accompanied by the Persian text on facing pages, this transaltion captures the narrative power of the poem as no other English transaltion has. Now at last, the dramatic and exotic world of the "SHAHNAMEH" is revealed to the English reader.
