Description
Information
A tale of war and forbidden love from eleventh-century Persia

Believed by many scholars to be the inspiration for Tristan and Isolde, Vis and Ramin was written between 1050 and 1055 and is the first Persian romance. At the heart of the story is Vis, daughter of the queen of Mah and promised to Mobad, King of Marv. Against a background of court intrigue, broken promises, and open conflict, Vis finds herself escorted to her future husband by his brother, Ramin-an impetuous prince who cannot help falling in love with his charge and jeopardizing the fate of two realms. Lushly told and keenly perceptive in its characterizations, Vis and Ramin, is a masterpiece with timeless appeal.
