Fal-E Hafez (Omens of Hafez) Farsi Book, Vol 2
Fal-e Hafez has long had a special place and status among Iranians and based on tradition, Iranian people open and read the Divan of Hafez in various ceremonies such as Eid Nowruz or Yalda night and fortune-telling with it. This is done by family elders or people who are familiar with Hafez’s lyric poems and have the ability to interpret the poems.
Shamsed-din Hafez was born some six hundred years ago in southern Iran, but his poems have universal and contemporary appeal. Wherever Persian is known, he is easily recited by both king and common man. Those uncertain about matters of love, fortune, or any other situation open a page of his collection of poems at random and in it see their dilemmas untangled. His turns of phrase have enriched the Persian lexicon and entered everyday language; this has made him Persian culture’s most read, quoted, and revered figure. Reza Ordoubadian’s translations make the poems of Hafez accessible to the English language reader, while remaining faithful to the nuances of Hafez’s language and thought in the original Persian.
