Observant readers will note that the Kasidah contains many references to 19th Century scientific and philosophical concepts, most notably the evolution of species.

Kasidah of Haji Abdu El-Yezdi. THE KASIDAH OF HAJI ABDU EL-YEZDI THE KASIDAH I The hour is nigh; the waning Queen walks forth to rule the later night; Crownd with the sparkle of a Star, and throned on orb of ashen light: The Wolf-tail sweeps the paling East to leave a deeper gloom behind, And Dawn uprears her shining head, sighing with semblance of a wind

  • This is a very small book of Arabic-style/Arabic-influenced poetry. i consider this a mini-Necronomicon & indeed, the author seems to be possessed by the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred! The name Yezdi implies that he is of the Yezidis who are an almost extinct tribe of Kurds in the Middle-East who believe that Lucifer is the Chief Archangel & not @ all evil! It is hinted in some Lovecraft that the Black Book of the Yezidi is a Necronomicon or very similar to the actual Necronomicon. The poetry of this book is very fluid, inspirational, & beautiful. i'd have to say this is my favorite work of poetry i've ever read. The only downside to this book is that it ends too soon!

  • Burton is without doubt one of, if not THE treasure among unsung English poets. In my first approach to this text I could only read small portions before I was forced to stop and digest this "new and different kind of food". His words gave off many images as vivid as the tapestry of a sunset in the Sahara. I read his lines of poetry and am instantly thrown back to my youth, sitting in a sidewalk cafe in a village at the end of the Atlas mountains, and watching the Tuareg riders moving out into the desert...and hearing the tinkling of the bells their camels wore. You owe this book to yourself if you have a soul.

  • What I liked about this Kindle Edition was that the footnotes were well preserved and available to read reasonably quickly after each footnote number appeared in the text; that there were no OCR errors and very, very few typographical errors; and most importantly that the NOTES were included. The full set of additional Notes are not included in many other free public editions.
    Warning: this Kasidah contains a carefully considered critique of world religious thought, from the time before the Egyptians to approximately 1880.

  • It's a faithful presentation of the philosophy.

  • Timely delivery and good quality.

  • excellent

  • The word Kasidah can be translated Testament, and here it conveys several of the meanings of that word. It is a statement about what the author believes and what he does not, it is concerned with the authority and veracity of scriptures, and it is deeply concerned with the meaning and consequences of death.
    Burton here melds his broad knowledge of Western philosophy and religion with a deep understanding of Eastern philosophical and metaphysical thought, and he presents it flawlessly in the poetic idiom of the Sufis. This work stands alone, incomparable, for it is truly a unique work of genius. The Way of the Sufi is here presented in Western thought, clothed in poetic Sufi garb.
    The Kasidah is an Agnostic Gospel. It calls for an abandonment of argument over what can never be known an acceptance that death is a mystery that we cannot penetrate, and a shunning of bribes of heaven or threats of hell. Burton offers instead his code for living the life before us - "Do what thy manhood bids thee do/ from none but self expect applause;/ He noblest lives and noblest dies/ who makes and keeps his self-made laws."
    The Kasidah expresses Burton's life philosophy, stark, with a terrible beauty. It has been called his spiritual autobiography. More than any of his many other works, it reveals the heart and mind of this brilliant and amazing man. That is more than enough reason to read this powerful book.
    This book should be read by anyone with an interest in Sir Richard Burton, Sufi poetry, the philosophy of applied Agnosticism, or works of unique and powerful vision. It has my highest recommendation

  • This little book of Poetry is actually a Necronomicon. It's written by a White-guy possessed by an Arabic or Middle-Eastern Spirit, or @ least he was channeling this work because it is very similar to Mystical Sufi Poetry. Beyond someone just trying to imitate it, this work seems very authentic & i imagine this is what the Mad Arab: Abdul Alhazred's Poetry would sound like. It is very beautiful & haunting @ the same time. Must-have for any Necronomicon Scholar. It is very small, however well worth it!
