Hafiz: life and times, an introduction


This is a brief introduction to the life and times of Hafiz, considered by many to be the best lyric mystical poet of all time. We look at the city of Shiraz in the 14th century, the little that is known about Hafiz's personal life, and some of the imagery he employs in the poems.
