One of the Greatest Persian Books of All Time!

The Gulistan (The Rose Garden) is a landmark of Persian literature, and one of the most influential works of prose in Persian. Written in 1258 CE, it is considered as one of the greatest medieval Persian poets. The Gulistan (also known as Golestan) is a collection of stories and poems, just as a rose-garden is a collection of roses.
The English translation of Gulistan in this book provided by Edward Rehatsek in 1888. This bilingual book is a prestigious tool for Persian Literature scholars and students. It is enjoyable for poetry lovers of any age. Not only will poems and stories improve your Persian language, but they’ll help your understanding of Persian culture. Students will have ample opportunities to enrich their Persian learning experience and extend a range of language abilities through exploring these poems.

The English – Persian Glossary at the end of the book can help Persian scholars and students better understand keywords in the poems.
