Jami

(jä`mē), 1414–92, Persian poet, b. Jam, near Herat. His full name was Nur ad-Din Abd ar-Rahman Jami. His poetic influence was widespread. Nearly 100 works are attributed to him, of which some 40 are considered authentic. He was also known as a saint for his devotion to dervish teaching and to Sufi philosophy. Among his works is the collection of poems Haft Aurang [the seven thrones], including the allegory "Salaman and Absal" (tr. by Edward FitzGerald in the 19th cent.), and a version of the tale of Joseph and Potiphar's wife. His Baharistan [abode of spring] is a collection of short stories.
