Up until now several commentaries and explanatory accounts have been made of Sa’di’s ghazals (lyrics) the most important of them being Sharh-e Ghazliyat-e ostad-e sokhan sa’di-e Shirazi, by Khalil Khatib Rahbar; Gozideh-ye ghazaliyat-e Sa’di, by Hasan Anvari; Sharh-e ghazalha-ye Sa’di, by Mohammad Reza Barzgar and Tooraj Aqdaei; and Ghazaliyat-e Sa’di, by Farah Niyazkar.
The Sokhan Publishers has of late brought, in its “Of Persian literature heritage” series, an anthology of Sa’di’s ghazals selected by Mohammad Ja’far Yahaqqi together with notes and glosses, entitled Bedin shirin sokhan goftan (Singing [poetry] as sweet as this). The ghazals are taken from Gholam-Hoseyn Yusofi’s edition of Sa’di’s lyrics.
In the present article, after giving a brief description of the book, its comments and glosses will be discussed. Based on evidence and textual proofs, attempts have been made to present remarks regarding the commentator’s lapses followed by clearer interpretation of the meanings of the verses in question.
