Nizami Ganjavi’s Epic Love Poem Released in Tbilisi
The Azerbaijan State Translation Centre (AzSTC) is pleased to announce the printed edition of Leyli and Majnun by Azerbaijan’s greatest poet Nizami Ganjavi due to the announcement of 2021 as a “Year of Nizami Ganjavi” in Azerbaijan.
A model for the inaccessibility of human genius
Leyli's image depicts the awakening of a woman in the Middle Ages, in the context of awareness of her humanity and tragedy. Leyli's tragedy lies in the reluctance of the old to give way to the new, in the intransigence and cruelty of all the old to everything new. In the Middle Ages, when the absolute power of feudal lords began to fluctuate, but still retained its power, the tragedy of Leyli seemed something ordinary. Outwardly, Leyli resembles a person who obeys the demands of her time, yet she challenges time with her proud silence and as if the sun illuminates the darkness, continuing to live as a person carrying the torch of humanity.
