Influence of Sadi and Hafez on Uzbek literature

by Anonymous on 9/28/2004

The Tehran Times reports about the publishing of two books on the influence of Iranian poets, Sadi Sherazi and Hafiz, on the Uzbek literature. The article quotes Dr. Mahmud Azimov, the author of “Impression of Hafez on Uzbek Literature”, saying that:

“The impression of Hafez’s poetry on Uzbek literature is quite outstanding and there was a time in the past when the Divan of Hafez was taught at schools of Uzbekistan and the old poets used to compose poetry in the style of Hafez in olden times.”
