Abstract:
It is the purpose of this thesis to trace and enumerate the specific influences upon English literature and thought of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries emanating from Persian literature during the golden epoch of literature and philosophical achievement which began in the seventh century of the Christian era and came to a sad termination during the last decade of the fourteenth' century. The task has not been free from difficulties. First there has been the difficulty of assigning within the volume of Islamic literature the part which can be proved to be exclusively Persian, either in origin or in character. To surmount this, it-has become necessary to allocate a chapter to "The Case for Persian Literature", the reason being that in this particular instance no logical development of the subject can be expected before it is proved that the subject exists. The second difficulty concerned the confinement of the period within certain dates either on the Iranian side or on the English, because literature has never been the legacy or outcome of a particular year.
