Nezami-ye Ganjavi is considered the greatest romantic epic poet in Persian literature, who brought a colloquial and realistic style to the Persian epic. His heritage is widely appreciated and shared by Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, and Tajikistan. His personal name was Ilyas and his chosen pen-name was Nezami (also spelled as Nizami). Nezami lived in an age of both political instability and intense intellectual activity. Nezami is best known for his five long narrative poems, which have been preserved. Nezami was a master of the Masnavi style (double-rhymed verses). He wrote poetical works; the main one is the Panj Ganj (Persian: Five Jewels) Quinary , also known by the Persian pronunciation of the same word in Arabic, Khamse.
