- THE GARDEN OF HEAVEN - POEMS OF HAFIZ
Details"Hafiz has no peer." -- GoethePoetry is the greatest literary form of ancient Persia and modern Iran, and the 14th-century poet known as Hafiz is its preeminent master. This collection is derived from Hafiz's "Divan" (collected poems), a classic of Sufism. This 19th-century translation by historian Gertrude Bell remains widely acclaimed by scholars and readers.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Hafiz of Shiraz was widely regarded as an infidel in his day. Today he is recognized in the East not only for the excellence of his poetry, but also as a Sufi illuminate. His major work, The Diwan, is found beside the Koran in the homes of the devout. In the West, Hafiz--a contemporary of Dante--is admired for his love-poetry; Goethe, among others, acknowledged his influence.
