Autorenporträt
Hafis (d. h. Bewahrer: der Ehrenname für diejenigen, die den Koran auswendig beherrschen), lebte von 1326 bis 1390 in Schiras. Er gilt als der größte Dichter Persiens. In seinen Liedern und Gedichten verherrlichte er nicht nur Allah und den Koran, er besang in den feurigsten Tönen die Schönheit der Natur, die Liebe zu Frauen und Knaben, zu Wein, Schenken, Gesang und Tanz. Goethe nennt ihn den "heiligen Hafis". Ein Heiliger, der das Leben in seiner ganzen Fülle und Sinnlichkeit liebte und genauso sinnlich in seinen Gedichten pries.

Rezensionen
There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well.   Coleman Barks
