Encyclopedia > Powys Mathers

Edward Powys Mathers (1892-1939) was a translator and poet, and editor with J. C. Mardrus of The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night (his English translation of the Mardrus adaptation appeared in 1923). He is known also for the translations The Garden of Bright Waters: One Hundred and Twenty Asiatic Love Poems (1920); and of the Kashmiri poet Bilhana in Bilhana: Black Marigolds (1919), a free interpretation in the tradition of Edward Fitzgerald. These are not scholarly works, and are in some cases based on intermediate versions in European languages. Some of his translations were set to music by Aaron Copland.

He was also a composer of crossword puzzles.
