Words of Wisdom to my son MuhammadThe great Azerbaijani poet Nizami Ganjavi wrote wise lectures to all young people in his three poems “WORDS OF WISDOM TO MY SON MUHAMMAD”. But the great thinker’s wise lectures do not end there. In all his works, he urges the reader not to appreciate youth. That’s why we called the book “Admonition to my son.” Thus, all the instructive stories, philosophical thoughts, appeals that appreciate the literary work, express the great meaning in a few words, verses, rhymes, ghazals, poems that glorify the youth, which are included in his works, as well as those mentioned or abbreviated in high school textbooks, are one. we collect and present on the ground. The book is intended for pupils, students and teachers.

Sword and PenThe novel “Sword and Pen”, which describes social events in a very interesting way, was written in the adventurous style typical of the work of Mammad Said Ordubadi. Although the prototype of Nizami Ganjavi occupies a central place in the work, the author was not satisfied with this and tried to revive the comprehensive picture of the period of the great poet’s life, creating wide panels of people’s life. That is why the novel is called “Sword and Pen” not in the name of the protagonist, but as a symbol of two important factors in the life of the work – the physical and spiritual strength of the people.

From the first lines of the novel, which attracts attention with its rich gallery of images, the author describes the situation of the heroes with a special love. “The Sword and the Pen”, which unites all the stories and personalities, complex events around a tense plot line, is undoubtedly a valuable historical novel that occupies an important place in Ordubadi’s work and inspires great interest in studying Nizami and his time.

Seven Beauties InterpretationThe book “Seven beauties” is the first example of folklore of Nizami’s poem of the same name in the Azerbaijani language. The saga was published in 1912 in Tabriz. The delicate feelings of the Azerbaijani people, to which the poet belongs, are expressed here, the characteristic features of the heroes created by Nizami, their psychological world are preserved as they are.

Thanks to the hard work of orientalist Mehri Mammadova, the book “Seven beauties”, rich in Persian and Arabic sentences, is delivered to readers in a modern language style.

Nesimi_Qezeller_qapaqThe book includes ghazals of the great Azerbaijani poet Imadeddin Nasimi (1369-1417) written in his native language, mainly in lyrical tone. In these poems, which played an important role in the formation of our literary language, the glorification of human beauty and the heartbeat of the lyrical lover occupy a leading place. Nasimi left a rich legacy. The great Azerbaijani poet Nizami Ganjavi, who continued and developed the humanistic ideas brought to the Middle East literature, praised his high faith in man, human dignity and power, and in his poems described man as the creator of life, the real source of life’s beauty.

Füzuli_Leyli_və_MəcnunMohammad Fuzuli is one of the world-famous masters of words in Azerbaijani literature. M.Fuzuli, who created unique examples of lyrical poetry, also tested the power of his pen in the epic genre. His poem “Leyli and Majnun” written in this genre is considered to be one of the best examples of our epic poetry.

The theme of the poem is taken from a widespread love legend about Leyli and Majnun, who are accepted as true devotees of love throughout the Eastern world. This topic was first introduced to the written literature by another great Azerbaijani poet N. Ganjavi. However, although M. Fuzuli’s poem “Leyli and Majnun” is based on Nizami’s work of the same name, he changed a number of episodes, thought of new scenes, as well as included a number of lyrical poems in the poem to increase the impact of the work. Most importantly, Fuzuli approached the topic of eternal love, issues such as human survival and inner freedom from a different perspective. As a result, the thinker-poet created an original and extremely perfect monument of words.

Farhod va ShirinFarhad and Shirin (Uzbek: Фарход ва Ширин) is the second work in the collection “Khamsa” by the Uzbek poet Alisher Navoi. The poet wrote this poem in 1484. The work is based on Nizami’s poem “Khosrov and Shirin” and its weight is the fruit of pleasure, as in Nizami’s. However, Navoi’s “Farhad and Shirin” is also a new work that differs from all previous works of the same content.

The first feature that distinguishes this work is that Navai, like all poets before him, wrote it not in Persian, but in his own language – Uzbek. Another innovation is the glorification of the traditions, desires and aspirations of the Uzbek people and Turkic-speaking peoples. The images, events, purpose and goal in the work are completely different. New types of people are described here, and the content of the work is completely different from the work of the protagonist Nizami.
