Nizami Ganjavi, the greatest representative of the Eastern Renaissance, who was born in the 12th century in the town of Ganja, Azerbaijan and represented the quintessence of world literature and philosophy in his immortal work "Khamsa" (Five) via aesthetic power of his art. Humanity and loves is the motif at the very heart of Nizami Ganjavi’s poetry and the poet regarded it as his sacred mission to apply every ounce of creativity to the service of his people. His works have been translated into Western as well as into Eastern languages from time to time and played its role in humanity’s moral development.
