Garden Of Fragrance Sadi English Bostan Saadi

Often there is an intriguing bit of autobiographical reflection at the start of each piece, followed by some vaguely relevant philosophical rambling and a final poetic quote which may have been a real zinger in the original Persian but is lost in the English.

I found Saadi’s political philosophy rather unattractive, with no real ethical compass as far as I could tell other than the need to stay alive under a despotic ruler and if possible preserve one’s self-respect; like Machiavelli without the humour, or indeed like Confucianism without the sense of tradition.

In general, lust for young men is not my own usual preference, but Saadi took me into his own world very effectively. The flip side is, sadly, that women are annoying distractions and irrelevant to the business of being manly in Saadi’s world. One other thing I did enjoy was trying to spot the rhyming schemes in the poetry. Usually it is rhyming couplets: It’s quite fun to try and spot these things in a language where I barely know any of the letters.

Bustan (book) – Wikipedia

Bostan is entirely in verse epic metre and consists of stories aptly illustrating the standard virtues recommended to Muslims justice, liberality, modesty, contentment as well as of reflections on the behaviour of dervishes and their ecstatic practices. Gulistan is mainly in prose and contains stories and personal anecdotes. The text is interspersed with a variety of short poems, containing aphorisms, advice, and humorous reflections.

Saadi demonstrates a profound awareness of the absurdity of human existence. The fate of those who depend on the changeable moods of kings is contrasted with the freedom of the dervishes.
