A masterpiece of Arabic love poetry in a new and complete English translation The Translator of Desires, a collection of sixty-one love poems, is the lyric masterwork of Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi (1165–1240 CE), one of the most influential writers of classical Arabic and Islamic civilization. In this authoritative volume, Michael Sells presents the first complete English translation of this work in more than a century, complete with an introduction, commentary, and a new facing-page critical text of the original Arabic. While grounded in an expert command of the Arabic, this verse translation renders the poems into a natural, contemporary English that captures the stunning beauty and power of Ibn ‘Arabi’s poems in such lines as “A veiled gazelle’s / an amazing sight, / her henna hinting, / eyelids signalling // A pasture between / breastbone and spine / Marvel, a garden / among the flames!” The introduction puts the poems in the context of the Arabic love poetry tradition, Ibn ‘Arabi’s life and times, his mystical thought, and his “romance” with Niẓām, the young woman whom he presents as the inspiration for the volume—a relationship that has long fascinated readers. Other features, following the main text, include detailed notes and commentaries on each poem, translations of Ibn ‘Arabi’s important prefaces to the poems, a discussion of the sources used for the Arabic text, and a glossary. Bringing The Translator of Desires to life for contemporary English readers as never before, this promises to be the definitive volume of these fascinating and compelling poems for years to come.

The Journey of I & I is a raw yet powerful account of a tragic and horrendous childhood endured by Liz, an ordinary child growing up in extraordinary circumstances. Readers are taken on a journey of unfathomable lows and motivating highs as they find themselves turning the pages wanting to simultaneously help the main character, Liz, wanting to rescue her, embrace her, cry and laugh with her. It is primarily a tale of survival and determination as the Author invites readers to accompany Liz on her life's journey. Despite its initial subject matter of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence, it is a tale also interspersed with humour and laugh out loud moments. It is a story of the dynamics of her relationships at every turn of her life. Its a story of chaos and drama and as one reader wrote: 'I read a story and I was there. I read a story of sadness, hope and of courage and laughter and I was there. I read of horror and betrayal and I was there'. It is a journey of mental, physical, emotional and spiritual healing achieved through a returned journey re-commencing from her birth. It is a story that had to be written and told in order for Liz, the main character, to validate and make sense of her dramatic emergence into this world and of her life. A story that was inspired by her courage to retrace her steps back into horrific darkness and pain. It is ultimately a story that will help and inspire others who suffered or suffering in similar circumstances. It is a story of HOPE. "Powerful and Inspirational are definitely words that describe both you as an individual and as a writer. I will be first in line to buy your book and to have it signed personally by you. I could not be more proud of you. I have always said that you are the most inspirational and talented person with words and much more and I am truly grateful for any time I get to speak with you and hear your words. I am so glad and happy that your words will be read by so many now." - R.W. - Army Military Employee "Your style of writing is extremely powerful and inspiring. Your story is so well written and descriptive that there is no doubt that this story will go a long way to helping others who have been through or who are currently experiencing similar situations and circumstances. Our one regret is that we did not sign you up first!" - Dorrance Publishing Team Member

This is the first volume to focus specifically on Rabindranath Tagore’s dramatic literature, visiting translations and adaptations of Tagore’s drama, and cross-cultural encounters in his works. As Asia’s first Nobel Laureate, Tagore’s highly original plays occupy a central position in the Indian theatrescape. Tagore experimented with dance, music, dance drama, and plays, exploring concepts of environment, education, gender and women, postcolonial encounters, romantic idealism, and universality. Tagore’s drama plays a generous host to experimentations with new performance modes, like the writing and staging of an all-women play on stage for the first time, or the use of cross-cultural styles such as Manipuri dance, Thai craft in stage design, or the Baul singing styles. This book is an exciting re-exploration of Tagore’s plays, visiting issues such as his contribution to Indian drama, drama and environment, feminist readings, postcolonial engagements, cross-cultural encounters, drama as performance, translational and adaptation modes, the non-translated or the non-translatable Tagore drama, Tagore drama in the 21st century, and Indian film. The volume serves as a wide-ranging and up-to-date resource on the criticism of Tagore drama, and will appeal to a range of Theatre and Performance scholars as well as those interested in Indian theatre, literature, and film.

The Christian life is a journey, as John Bunyan put it in Pilgrim's Progress, from the "City of Destruction" to the "Celestial City." The Christian's experiences are many and varied along the way. Sometimes, the Christian seems to be in "green pastures" and sometimes in the "valley of the shadow of death," yet the Shepherd is with him all the time and all the way. We have many blessings but also many trials in this "already but not yet" life. Already we taste something of the joy of heaven and the "powers of the age to come" but we are still beset with sin and weakness and must "keep on keeping on." It is hoped that this volume will bring encouragement to God's people to do just that.

Speak life! What we think determines what we say and this refl ects who we really are for we are exposed by the fruit of our mouths. We must be able to see Gods kingdom and this is a spiritual endeavor. The kingdom begins in the spirit and is then made manifest in the natural realm. We lost sight when Adam abdicated the throne to Satan. A fundamental disconnect occurred when we exited the Garden of Eden. Revelation provides the inner sight that Jesus came to restore for he opened blinded eyes.

The Literature of Al-Andalus is an exploration of the culture of Iberia, present-day Spain and Portugal, during the period when it was an Islamic, mostly Arabic-speaking territory, from the eighth to the thirteenth century, and in the centuries following the Christian conquest when Arabic continued to be widely used. The volume embraces many other related spheres of Arabic culture including philosophy, art, architecture and music. It also extends the subject to other literatures - especially Hebrew and Romance literatures - that burgeoned alongside Arabic and created the distinctive hybrid culture of medieval Iberia. Edited by an Arabist, an Hebraist and a Romance scholar, with individual chapters compiled by a team of the world's leading experts of Islamic Iberia, Sicily and related cultures, this is a truly interdisciplinary and comparative work which offers a interesting approach to the field.
