About this Collection

One of the greatest poets and thinkers, Nizami Ganjavi was born in Ganja, Azerbaijan in 1141 and died in 1209. While not a court poet, he was prolific and his poetry was very influential during his lifetime, and longer after.

While only a small corpus of his lyric poetry has survived, he is best known for his five long narrative poems which together are referred to as the "Panj Ganj" or "Khamsa", which are also available in the collection.

This collection was created as a fruit of the Nizami Ganjavi Ethics Symposium held in Geneva, held on the 12th and 13th of March, 2015. This symposium was organized in collaboration with the Nizami Ganjavi International Center (Baku, Azerbaijan).
