An erotic classic and the most recognized work of an celebrated nineteenth-century poet and courtesan 'Last night, I dreamt of Hari With that melodious-voiced woman. He seemed impatient with me, And now even The song of the nightingale seems shrill.'

And, after another hundred years, this epic is now available in its entirety for the first time in English translation
