Author Biography - Peter Avery

Hafiz Hafiz was said to have received miraculously the gift of poetry from Khizr, a mysterious personage of Near Eastern folklore, a sort of roaming scholar, who had discovered the Elixir of Life, and who appeared from time to time to ordinary mortals. Like all the Persian poets of the Middle Ages, Hafiz was a court-poet and a panegyrist. Sir Peter Avery is a fellow of Oriental Languages at King's College, Cambridge. Sir John Heath-Stubbs is one of England's most honored contemporary poets.
