HOS Hafiz of Shiraz 1390 AD

Shams-ud-Din Muhammad Hafez of Shiraz known by his pen name Hafez was a Persian poet. His collected works are regarded as a pinnacle of Persian literature and are to be found in the homes of most people in Iran and Afghanistan, who learn his poems by heart and use them as proverbs and sayings to this day. His life and poems have been the subject of much analysis, commentary and interpretation, influencing post-fourteenth century Persian writing more than any other author.The work of Hafiz left an impact on such Western writers as Thoreau, Goethe, and Ralph Waldo Emerson—the latter referring to him as 'a poet's poet.'
