Article
The poetry of Nizam Al-Din Mahmud Da‘i Shirazi, often called Shāh Dā‘ī is due more attention, as the translation of his "Tale of the Fish" demonstrates. A biography of the poet is followed in the article by some illumination of his thought, which closely follows that of Ibn ‘Arabi, and some commentary of the mystical poem "Tale of the Fish". The poem reveals the poet's beauty of language, even in translation, as well as a facility with using allegory to bring life to profound metaphysical truths.
