The Quickening is a collection of stirring poems by the renowned nineteenth-century poetess Tahirih that deals with a subject that has challenged religious scholars throughout the ages. This subject is the concept of a last judgment or end of time. Tahirih's beautifully written poems show that the Baha'i view of the "Resurrection" or the "Quickening," as the term is translated here, stands in bold contrast to many traditional views. Her poems depict the Quickening as a prelude to a glorious outcome - the galvanizing of our collective will to bring about a just and lasting peace and the unification of humankind. This volume includes the poems of Tahirih in their original languages, Persian and Arabic, as well their English translations.
