Abstract This classic love tale of the Middle East, quoted by Baha'u'llah in the Seven Valleys, is prized by Sufi mystics as a spiritual allegory of the soul's search for union with God. A literary-critical analysis of the text yields theological clues.
Notes Presented at the Irfán Colloquium Session #36, London School of Economics (July 14, 2001).
