‘Hakim Nizami connecting link between world’s Persian speakers’

Tehran, IRNA - The ambassador of Tajikistan in Tehran has called Hakim Nizami or Nizami Ganjavi, the great Persian poet and novelist of the 12 century a connecting link between countries and nations of the region as well as Persian speakers elsewhere in the world.

According to IRNA's cultural reporter, Nizamuddin Zahedi, on the final day of the third commemoration ceremony of Hakim Nizami, at the Vahdat Hall in Tehran, pointed to many great Persian-speaking poets who followed the Khamsa (quintet, five long poems) style of Nizami. 

Poets such as Amir Khosrow Dehlavi, Khajavi Kermani and Maulana Abdul Rahman Jami, Abdullah Hatfi and several others continued the traditions of Nizami in the best possible way, Zahedi said.

With his Khamsa, Ganjavi played an effective role in the growth of Masnavi (Spiritual Couplets) in Persian literature, but also in the spread and prosperity of this in the literature of other nations, he added.

Nizami brought a colloquial and realistic style to the Persian epic. His heritage is widely appreciated and shared by Afghanistan, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Iran, the Kurdistan region and Tajikistan.

On Saturday, Nizami was also remembered in a ceremony organized by the Iranian Embassy in in Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan and attended by professors and students from different universities there.
