The quantity of scholarship on Persian literature is enormous. Yet works of literary criticism and analytical studies are a minute and newly-added portion of its entirety. With few and noteworthy exceptions, the works are agglomerated around the names of such giants of Persian literature as Hafiz, Rumi, and Ferdowsi. In this book Solati demonstrates the influence of Hafiz on the thoughts, poetic language, and philosophy of the nineteenth and twentieth century Persian poets, writers and critics.
