Summary, etc.:
"Layli and Majnun tells of star-crossed lovers whose union is tragically thwarted by their families and whose passion continues to ripple out across the centuries. The twelfth-century Persian poet Nezami blends erotic longing and spiritual self-denial in an allegory of Sufi aspiration, as the amenities of civilization give way to the elemental wilderness, desire is sublimated into a mystical renunciation of the physical world, and the soul confronts its essence"-- Provided by publisher.

Translated from Persian into English.
