Fakhr al-din 'Iraqi: introduction


A brief introduction to 'Iraqi's life and times, with extracts from some of his poems. One of the greatest love-poets in the Persian language (a forerunner of and influence on Hafiz), 'Iraqi combined the drunken love-school of Ahmad Ghazaali with the sober metaphysics of Ibn 'Arabi.
