Description

Jami is the last great poet that Persia has produced. He devoted the whole of his life to study and literary work, and has left behind him at least fifty volumes of poetry, grammar, and theology, which are still read and admired in the eastern world. " With us," says Mr. Fitzgerald, in his notice of Jami's Life prefixed to his translation of " Salaman and Absal," " his name is almost wholly associated with his ' Yusuf and Zulaikha ;' the' Beharistan ;' and this present' Salaman and Absal which he tells us is like to be the last product of his old age. And these three count for three of the brother stars of that constellation into which his seven best mystical poems are clustered under the name of ' Heft Aurang ' those ' Seven Thrones ' to which we of the West and North give our characteristic names of ' Great Bear ' and ' Charles's Wain. But of all the Works of Jami, “ Yousaf and Zulekha ” is undoubtedly the most famous. In India although for obvious reasons it is not admitted into the course of Government or aided schools. it is read in all independent indigenous schools in Which Persian is taught, and is in them what Ovid is or was in all grammar schools in England.
