About the Authors
  • Two essays on Persian and Arabic poetic literature, which form the first part of a collection of essays by Nicholson. This volume was written during the First World War and originally published in 1921. The second volume Studies in Islamic Mysticism was reissued in the Cambridge University Press Library Collections series in 1967. The essays contain full quotation in translation and the original texts appear in an appendix.
