Abu-Nuwas al-Hasan ben Hani Al-Hakami (756814), was one of the greatest of classical Arabic and Persian poets. Born in the city of Ahvaz in Persia, of an Arab father and a Persian mother, he became a master of all the contemporary genres of Arabic poetry. Abu Nuwas has entered the folkloric tradition, and he appears several times in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights.
