H?fiz is honored as the greatest lyric poet of Iran and the D?v?n-i H?fiz, his collected poetry, is without doubt one of the world's greatest literary achievements. Translated here from the edition of Parv?z N?t?l Kh?nlar?, the 486 poems have been rendered as literally as possible while trying to convey some sense of the original poetry to the reader who lacks knowledge of Persian. The ghazals are introduced and presented with extensive annotation by one of today's most eminent scholars of Persian literature.
