About the Author

Elizabeth T. Gray, Jr., born in Boston, Massachusetts, is the author of the poetry collection Series - India. Her celebrated translations from classical and contemporary Persian include Wine and Prayer: Eighty Ghazals from the Díwán of Hafiz, The Green Sea of Heaven: Fifty Ghazals from the Diwán of Hafiz, and Iran: Poems of Dissent.


A remarkable work of poetry. Everything invoked is both crystal-clear while yet retaining its crystal mystery. There is a magical accession to the delineation of links and relationships developing in the poem, even the physical connections (real or imaginary) when moving from soldier to soldier, woman to soldier; poet to soldier, woman/poet to lover.--Nathaniel Tarn, from the afterword
Extraordinary: Gray concludes this striking work by praying that the goddesses will do what humans never could: just stay.--Heather McHugh
