Poems from the Divan of Hafiz

HAFIZ (1325 - 1390), translated by Gertrude BELL (1868 - 1926)

Hafiz was a Persian poet. His collected works (Divan) are regarded as a pinnacle of Persian literature. While influenced by Islam, his mystical works are highly regarded by Hindus, Christians and others, and his influence extends to several well-known writers such as Thoreau, Goethe, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. This modest collection of 43 poems is translated by Gertrude Bell. - Summary by Kevin Davidson and the Wikipedia
