The Gulistan (Rose Garden) is as exalted in the Islamic World as its writer. Written in Farsi in the 13th century Iran (Persia), this masterpiece consists of moral and ethical stories that explore the complexities of human behaviour. It brings to life, in a peerless combination of prose and verse, a world of kings, commoners, lovers, and scholars and provides easy guidance to its readers in their quest for a conscientious living. The Gulistan was an important textbook in elementary education in Hindustan when the British came to rule the subcontinent. It was then that it was translated in English and other European languages by eminent western scholars. This superb translation by John T. Platts has been chosen for the 21st century readers on account of its impeccable language, closeness to the original text and unparalleled notes. John T. Platts (1830-1904) was an English scholar born in the British India. He was a linguist par-excellence. Not only did he translate The Gulistan and Ikhwanu-s-Safa in English, but also compiled dictionaries and Persian and Hindi grammar books. His magnum opus A Hindustani-English Dictionary (1881) has not been rivalled yet. It is still in common use throughout the subcontinent.

In the wake of the critical success of The Late Parade (?poetry as lush as any of Keats?s odes,? New York Times Book Review), Adam Fitzgerald?s George Washington follows in the documentary poetics tradition of William Carlos Williams?s In the American Grain and Susan Howe?s My Emily Dickinson. These frenetic poems channel the proper names and product placement in the suburban New Jersey memescape of the 1990s. Fitzgerald?s catalogs?a world of video games and love songs, entertainment franchises and widespread anomie?seek out the proxies by which millions now live their most intimate experiences, examining everything from sexuality and faith to the spectacles of shopping and mass shootings. The poet?s memory may prove as fungible as the once-ubiquitous VHS cassette, but these queer poems form a hypertext archive of life as it?s packaged and purveyed. Fitzgerald?s ?primal vision? (Harold Bloom), so wildly alive in The Late Parade, metamorphoses into an exhilarating exploration of Americana?s dark origins.
