Description

Poems from the Divan of Hafiz by Hafiz, tr. by Gertrude Lowthian Bell

Khwaja Shemsundin Mahommad Hifiz-e Sirazi, or simply Hafiz was a Persian mystic and poet. His lyrical poems, known as Ghazals, are noted for their beauty and bring to fruition the love, mysticism, and early Sufi themes that had long pervaded Persian poetry. Moreover, his poetry possessed elements of modern surrealism. By listening to his father's recitations, Hafiz had accomplished the task of learning the Qur'an by heart, at an early age (that is in fact the meaning of the word Hafiz). He is said to have become a poet in the court of Abu Ishak, and so gained fame and influence in his hometown. The works of Hafiz have left a mark on such important Western writers as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Goethe. In Iran, his collected works have come to be used as an aid to popular divination. Though Hafiz's poetry is influenced by his Islamic faith, he is widely respected by Hindus, Christians and others.

About the Author:

"Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell CBE (July 14, 1868 - July 12, 1926) was a British writer, traveler, political analyst, administrator in Arabia, and an archaeologist who mapped and identified Anatolian and Mesopotamian ruins. She was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1917. Bell and T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) are recognized as almost wholly responsible for creating the Hashemite dynasty in Jordan and the modern state of Iraq. During her life, she was an unsung force behind the success of the Arab revolt in World War I. At the conclusion of the war, she drew up borders within Mesopotamia to include the three Ottoman Empire vilayets that later became Iraq." (Quote from wikipedia.org) This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
