brev• JOSEPH AND ZULAIKHA
The Story of 'Madame DePotiphar with
Persian Addenda, which are very
Important—A Beautiful Tale.
The London Atheneum gives a careful
review of the "Analysis and Specimens
of Joseph and Zulaikha,
romantic poem," by the Persian poet
Jami, recently published by Williams &
Norgate, and in the review cent . s)me in
traerestiug points relating to the poet' and
the poem. Oriental poetry, the critic
holds, like Oriental art, has its own pe
eI:W.ILT genius, and the Western mind must
be trained before it can enjoy or admire
it. The poem of Joseph and Zuliakha,"
one of the gems of Persian poetry, by
Abderahman Ibn Ahmed—or as be is
usually called, Nured-din Jami from the
place of his birth. is, perhaps, the work
most likely to he attractive, though we
doubt whether the most patient of readers
could get through the poem as a whole,
in spite of its many beauties. The pres
ent modest little brochure, which contains
the analysis of the story, with connected
specimens of the most interesting portions
is quite enough to satisfy an English
Jami was born A. D. 1414, or of the
Hegira 817. •He dedicated his whole life
to literature, and appears to have been a
very prolific writer; the titles of thirty
four of his works in prose and sixteen in
poetry remain. He wrote on all subjects
—history, religion, theology, morals and
numerous expositions of the mystic •:-doc
trines of the branch of Mohammedanism
to which he belonged. His strong mystic
tendencies are very evident in his treat
ment of bis present poem; for, though the
story of Joseph and Zulaikba is so ardent
in its descriptions as to make the Song of
Solomon seem "like snow in winter," still
it is evident throughout that a deep mys
tic meaning underlies the whole. The
love and sufferings of Zulaitha are in
tended to represent not alone an earthly
passion for a lover, but the aspiratiott4f
a human soul after its Maker—the pangs
of separation, and the ardent desire for
reunion with the fountain of life and
source of all good, from which it lias been
banished to the wilderness of this mortal
life. The poem however, is hot an allego-
ry, but a very beautiful and passionate
romance. Zulaikha is redeemed from the
ignomy that has been attached to her as
the "wife of Potiphar," and Joseph comes
oat with all the brilliancy with which
eastern traditions have endowed him, and
which lies quite entside our Bible history
His knowledge of magic (which he might
have derived, from his mother), his super.
busatn bee*, his love for Zulaikha
(which has its record in the Koran), and
his wonderful wisdom in interpreting
dreams and foretelling the future, all
eombine to afford reason enough for Zu
hakha's frantic and ungovernable passion.
The poem of "apseph and Zulaikba" has
never yet been brough before the English
reader, although Prof. Rosenwig has
translated it into German. Orientals
always take their time about everything,
and in the midst of joy and grief they
sake innumerable digressions, and stop
to elaborate their metaphors and similes
with a -Ininuteness that greatly detracts
from their freshness and suggestiveness.
Thistabit renders Oriental poetry fa
tiguing-to &European reader.
After a great deal of preliminary dally
ing with the sentiments of the story, and
before we are allowed to reach the pres
ence of Zulaikha, we are artfully prepared
to understand the magical and .over
whelming influence by which the "Moon
of Csanan" (Joseph) "bore away reason
from the brain of Zulaikha." The Ori
entals- believed that Joseph possessed the
greatest personal beauty that was oep:r
-bestowed oh a son of man, and no epiihtt
noslon of epithets, is able to set it
forth. The story' of Joseph, when living
with his father and brothel's, differs creme.
what from the Hebrew narrative and goes
more into detail; but both records agree
in the intense affectio&he excites in all
who saw him, except his brethern.
At last we reached the presence of the
lovely Zulaikha, and all merely mortal
men are bound to fall prostrate at her
feet. In the western land there lived 6
renowned king whose name was Timus.
Me had a daughter named Zulaikha, whom
be loved beyond all things in the world.
Ats to her loveliness, the poet declares "it
is not to be - comprised within the limits
of description." Nevertheless, he gives a
charming picture of her as a young, fresh
happy girl, before passion was stirred or
sorrow had come nigh her.
A Viiaion or dream shows her Joseph;
and after she has beeti / made ill by h:r
passionate love for her ideal Joseph, an
other vision reveals to her that he is a
prince of Egypt—the counselor of the
king of Egypt., with high dignity and
princedom. She tells her father all.
The fame of her beauty brings ambassa
dors to demand her in marriage.from all
the kings of the world, except from Egypt;
but Zulaikha will listen to none of them.
Her father dismisses all the ambassadors,
and sends a trusty messenger to Egypt to
offer his daughter in marriage to the
grand vizier, who is both astonished and
enchanted at such unexpected happiness,
which be accepts with all the eagerness it
deserves. They marry, and Zulaikha is
lodged magnificently, and left In perfect
freedom; but she continues in her misery.
All this time Joseph is living with his
father and his brethern. He, too, has
visions, but they are of his own future
greatness, and his heart is untroubled.
The story of Joseph is narrated according
to the Koran, and with more detail than
our own version. Malik, the leader of
the Midian caravan, is anxiously expected
in Egypt; the news of the beautiful slave
of the Hebrew race whom he ,brings with
him has already preceded hi m, the king
himself desiring to have the first sight of
him. When Joseph is brought out from
the palace a crowd has gathered round
the gate to behold him. Zulaikha, passing
at the moment in her litter, catches a
glimpse of him, recognizes him, and on
her return home persuades Potiphar to go
to the king, who is intending to purchase
him, and to request as a reward for his
services, that he may buy Joseph and
adopt him for his son. The king consents
and Joseph becomes an inmate of Poti
phar's household. We should say that
Zulaikha gives her husband all her own
jewels and treasures to enable him to pay
he immense price demanded. For a time
Zulaikha is happy and quiet; Joseph con
ducts himself blamelessly and prudently,
and no sign is given that he entertains any
feelings for Zulaikha beyond profound
The narrative here follows the Bible
till the accusation of Joseph. The inter
est of the poem centres in Z ilaikha. The
innocence of Joseph Is attested by a mir
acle; all the people refuse to, , believe his
guilt, and be reigns in prison as a king
rather than a captive. But the reader is
carried back to Zulaikha, her remorse and
despair. When after a lapse of time
Joseph is called out of prison by Pbaroab,
he refuses to come out until his innocence
is declared. Zulaikha confesses her guilt;
Potiphar dies shortly after; Zulaikha re
tires to her misery, living in obscurity.
Falling into premature old age and blind
ness, she builds a small house of reeds,
whence she can hear the sound of his
horse's feet as Joseph to and from the city
on the king's business.
She turns her thoughts to the God of
Joseph, forsakes her idols, and believes in
Jehovah. Joseph, hearing of her devout
ness, orders the chamberlain to bring ber
to the palace, and grants her a private
audience. She narrates her whole story,
and desires that he will pray for her res.
toration to her former state; and at his
prayer she recovers all her pristine beau
ty. She then beseeches him to marry her;
before he can answer Angel Gabriel brings
word that the marriage has been decreed
in heaven. The marriage is accordingly
proclaimed and celebrated in the presence
of the coart,,,with great pomp and rejoic
ing. Joseph is now as much in love with
Zulaikha as even her heart can desire, and
the victory of love is perfect. Joseph
dies, after learning the fact in a vision.
Zullikha lies insensible for three days,
and then the has herself carried to his
grave and expires upon it. Her attend
ants bnry her by the side of Joseph.
