Paperback - 100 pages,
Translated with Notes by Gertrude Bell.

"Hafiz has no peer." — Goethe.

Poetry is the greatest literary form of ancient Persia and modern Iran, and the 14th-century poet known as Hafiz, may Allah be pleased with him, is its pre-eminent master.

This collection is derived from Hafiz's Divan (collected poems), a classic of Sufism. The short poems, called ghazals, are sonnet like arrangements of varied numbers of couplets. In the tradition of Persian poetry and Sufi philosophy, each poem corresponds to two interpretations, sensual and mystic.

This 19th-century translation by historian & Arabic scholar Gertrude Bell remains widely acclaimed by scholars and readers.
