One of the most famous and greatest poets of Turkish literature. Fuzuli, who
had a perfect knowledge of Turkish, Arabic and Persian, the three great eastern
languages of the time, has written his collected poems (Divan) in three different
languages. Besides his "kaside", each being a monument, he has given us the
best and the most sensitive examples of lyrical Turkish poetry, "Leyla ile Mecnun".
This famous love and pain "mesnevi", which is considered to be the most important
work of Fuzuli, occupies a special place among the work on the theme of these
tragic and legendary lovers by numerous Turkish and Iranian poets. In his work
titled "hadikad-üs- Sueda he decribes the tragedy of Kerbela which is an extremely
sad incident of the Islamic history. This literary piece is one of the best
works produced in Turkish. He also has numerous other works of importance.
