The Kasîdah Of Hâjî Abdû El-Yezdî pdf
The Kasîdah of Hâjî Abdû El-Yezdî (1880) is a long English-language poem written by “Hâjî Abdû El-Yezdî”, a pseudonym of the true author, Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890), a well-known British Arabist and explorer. In a note to the reader, Burton claims to be the translator of the poem, to which he gives the English title “Lay of the Higher Law.” It is thus a pseudotranslation, pretending to have had an original Persian text, which never existed. The Kasidah is essentially a distillation of Sufi thought in the poetic idiom of that mystical tradition; Burton had hoped to bring Sufist ideas to the West.
The Kasîdah Of Hâjî Abdû El-Yezdî Summary
In adapting the style, techniques, and ideas of the classical Sufi masters (Hafez, Omar Khayyam), Burton produced a sort of “spiritual autobiography” in The Kasidah. In exploring the limitations of Man’s undeveloped reason, egoism, and self-made religions, he sought a fulfillment of individual human destiny. Burton spread a wide net in his allusions and influences. One of his biographers claimed to find elements of Confucius, Longfellow, Plato, Aristotle, Pope, Das Kabir, the Palambal — as well as Edward FitzGerald’s famous 1859 translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam — in the work.
