"Hickman has done his own magnificent job of storytelling. Expressed in an engaging and accessible prose, he combines an illuminating introduction with a sensitive rendering of the text, which captures both its charming simplicity and underlying spiritual power. This publication is an outstanding example of scholarly work suited to audiences from scholars to students and the general reading public"—Walter G. Andrews, University of Washington

"With his lively translation of Sheyyad Hamza’s The Story of Joseph, William Hickman opens a window onto the religious imagination and moral landscape of fourteenth-century Anatolia. The ample preface and postscript render Hamza’s poem easily accessible to readers unfamiliar with the literature of medieval Turkish."—Leslie Peirce, New York University

"A major contribution to the fields of religious studies, pre-modern literatures in general, and specifically Islamic religious studies."—Selim Kuru, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, University of Washington
