The story of Layla and Majnun is the classic Islamic story of doomed love. The young Bedouin poet Qays fell in love with Layla, a woman of his own tribe, and wrote her many celebrated love poems. When his father forbade the marriage, Qays went mad and began to wander the desert (Majnun is Arabic for 'madman'). Five centuries later, the Persian author Nezami wrote what is generally regarded as the finest version of their story, presented here in a new English translation.

The correct rhyme-structure of this long masnavi epic poem is here while retaining the beauty of the poetry, mystical meaning and simplicity of the form.

It is based on the real story of a young man called Majnun In (todays Iraq) during the Umayyad era in the 7th century when Arabs defeated Persia and Ctesiphon was destroyed and Persians built Iraq. In one version, he spent his youth together with Layla, tending their flocks. In another version, upon seeing Layla he fell passionately in love with her. In both versions, however, he went mad when her father prevented him from marrying her; for that reason he came to be called Majnun (Arabic: ) meaning "madman."

LAYLA & MAJNUN LAYLA AND MAJNUN is one of the most famous and influential love stories of all time. It is a true story that inspired Shakespeare to write 'Romeo and Juliet'. Of the many poetic versions of this immortal tale the one that has stood the test of time and influenced most others is by the great 12th century Persian poet NIZAMI that is written in over 4000 rhyming couplets that has been translated into many languages and has been told throughout the Middle East and elsewhere in songs, plays, operas and movies. The author of this film-script has used his own translations from his book of this work to form the narrative (by Nizami) and the dialogue and songs of all the participants to make this unique and important work of art, thus bringing to the viewer not only the scope of the story for the eye, emotion and heart but also the beauty, simplicity and profundity of the poetry of the story for the mind, feeling and soul. LAYLA AND MAJNUN are the children of the leaders of two large and powerful feuding tribes in 7th century Arabia who meet at school and fall helplessly and hopelessly in love... a love that will lead to war between the tribes, immortal songs of love and longing, madness, separation, scandal and disgrace, forced marriage, wanderings in the wilderness, friendship and betrayal, death and destruction of whole families and eventually the union of the two lost, tragic souls in a dramatic and heart-wrenching finale that transcends this material world. Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of over 80 books of Sufi poets of the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, 'Attar, Sana'i, Obeyd Zakani, Mu'in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, and others, his own poetry, fiction, plays, biographies, children's books and a dozen screenplays.

Chronicles Of Majnun Layla And Selected Poems

Chronicles of Majnun Layla and Selected Poems brings together in one volume Haddad’s seminal work and a considerable selection of poems from his oeuvre, stretching over forty years. The central poem, Chronicles of Majnun Layla, recasts the seventh-century myth into a contemporary, postmodern narrative that revels in the foibles of oral transmission, weaving a small side cast of characters into the fabric of the poem. Haddad portrays Layla as a daring woman aware of her own needs and desires and not afraid to articulate them. The author succeeds in reviving this classical work of Arabian love while liberating it from its puritanical dimension and tribal overtones. The selected poems reveal Haddad’s playful yet profound meditations. A powerful lyric poet, Haddad juxtaposes classical and modern symbols, and mixes the old with the new, the sensual with the sacred, and the common with the extraordinary. Ghazoul and Verlenden’s masterful translation remains faithful to the cultural and historical context in which the original poetry was produced while also reflecting the uniqueness of the poet’s style and his poetics.

The genre of Rajput painting flourished between the 16th and 19th centuries in the kingdoms that ruled what is now the Indian state of Rajasthan (place of rajas). Rajput paintings depicted the nobility and court spectacle as well as scenes from Krishna's life, the Hindu epics, and court poetry. Many Rajput kingdoms developed distinct styles, though they shared common conventions. This important book surveys the overall tradition of Indian Rajput painting, while developing new methods to ask unprecedented questions about meaning. Through a series of in-depth studies, Aitken shows how traditional formal devices served as vital components of narrative meaning, expressions of social unity, and rich sources of intellectual play. Supported by beautiful full-color illustrations of rare and often inaccessible paintings, Aitken's study spans five centuries, providing a comprehensive and innovative look at the Rajasthan's court painting traditions and their continued relevance to contemporary art.

Bedouin And Abb Sid Cultural Identities

This literary-historical book draws out and sheds light upon the mechanisms of "the ideological work" that the Arabic Majnūn Laylā story performed for ‘Abbāsid urbanite, imperial audiences in the wake of the disappearance of the "Bedouin cosmos." The study focuses upon the processes of primitivizing Majnūn in the romance of Majnūn Laylā as part of the paradigm shift that occurred in the ‘Abbāsid empire after the Greco-Arabian intellectual revolution. Moreover, this book demonstrates how gender and sexuality are employed in the processes of primitivizing Majnūn. As markers of "strangeness" and "foreignness" in the ‘Abbāsid interrogations of the multiple categories of ethnicity, culture, identity, religion and language present in their cosmopolitan milieus. Such "cultural work" is performed through the ideological uses of alterity given its mechanisms of distancing (e.g., temporal and spatial) and nearness (e.g., affective). Lastly, the Majnūn Laylā love story demonstrates, in its text and reception, that a Greco-Arabian and Greco-Persian subculture thrived in the centers of ‘Abbāsid Baghdad that molded and shaped the ways in which this love story was compiled, received and performed. Offering a corrective to the prevailing views expressed in Western scholarly writings on the Greco-Arabian encounter, this book is a major contribution to scholars and students interested in Islamic studies, Arabic and comparative literature, Middle East and gender studies.
