Hafez Best Classic Poet in Literature History: Turkish Writer

Hafez (1315-1390) was a Persian poet who “lauded the joys of love and wine but also targeted religious hypocrisy”.

His collected works are regarded by many Iranians as a pinnacle of Persian literature and are often found in the homes of people in the Persian-speaking world, who learn his poems by heart and still use them as proverbs and sayings.

His life and poems have become the subjects of much analysis, commentary and interpretation, influencing post-14th century Persian writing more than any other author.
