Richard Jeffrey Newman’s translation of Saadi’s Bustan is delightful, striking just the right balance between contemporary and classic. There is a wisdom in these pages that makes them sacred, yet there is also a system of ethics that makes them a “How To for the Soul,” and to tease out these meanings requires a master translator.
It is fortunate that Richard Jeffrey Newman has produced this fine and engaging translation of Saadi’s Bustan for English readers. It will be a welcome contribution for lovers of poetry.
