The Arab poet (757-815) was probably of Persian descent. He was Hofpoet and also friend of the Caliph Al-Amin (787-913), son and successor of the famous Caliph Harun al-Rashid (763-809). This epoch is considered the time of classical Arabic literature with the center of Baghdad. Abu Nuwas was one of the greatest poets in the Arab-Islamic culture. In order to learn the Bedouin and especially pure Arabic, he even spent a year among Bedouins in the desert. He wrote wine, hunting, praise, ridicule and mostly frivolous homoerotic love poems. For example, he composed: "I prefer the boys to the young girl, and old wine to the clear cold water, far from the right path I chose the sin, without circumstance, and just as frankly, I took the reins of my horse, the two Stirrups and the bridle, and I fell in love with a young Persian " . Because of these seals, he got very often problems, was also incarcerated and ultimately lost with death. On the basis of one of his numerous ridiculed poems, a noble Persian family had him abused so badly that he died as a result.
