Fifty Poems of Hafiz by Arthur John Arberry
Shams-us-din Muhammed better known by his takhallus of Hafiz ('one who remembers') was born in the 8th century of the Muslim era (c. AD 1300). Hafiz is one of the most famous writers of lyrical poetry, delighting in nature and enjoying life. As a young man, he devoted himself to the study of poetry and theology and also became learned in mystic philosophy. Hafiz went on to become a professor of Quranic exegesis in a college specially founded for him. The poems expertly translated here show his best features: the glowing imagery, the descriptions of natural beauties, and the fervent love passages.
