The poetry of Bullhe Shah (d. 1758) is considered one of the glories of premodern Punjabi literature. Born in Uch, Punjab, in present-day Pakistan, Bullhe Shah drew profoundly upon Sufi mysticism in his writings. His lyrics, famous for their vivid style and outspoken denunciation of artificial religious divisions, have long been held in affection by Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs and they continue to win audiences today across national boundaries and in the global Punjabi diaspora. Indeed, many young people in South Asia are already acquainted-albeit unknowingly at times-with the iconic eighteenth-century Punjabi poets words through popular musical genres of the twenty-first century.The striking new translation in English is presented alongside the Punjabi text, in the Gurmukhi script, re-edited on the basis of the best modern Pakistani and Indian editions. Bullhe Shahs Sufi Lyrics thus offers at once the most complete and most approachable version of this great poets works yet available.The Murty classical library of India makes available original texts and modern English translations of the masterpieces of literature and thought from across the whole spectrum of Indic languages over the past two millennia in the most authoritative and accessible formats on offer anywhere. Printed Pages: 479.
