Due to the deep and sharp view of its author, Majma al-Nafayes claims a special rank among the biographies of Persian poets. Though there are some inefficiencies, such as deliberate neglect of providing historical data particularly on the Iranian poets, it is often considered a book beyond a biography and as important as a collection of literary views expressed by the early scholars, hence a reliable first hand source in studying the developmental processes of literary sciences, particularly, literary criticism and stylistics. While the book is incredibly valuable, has, unfortunately, not been scholarly publicized so far, and what provided in its messed up publication by the men of letters in Pakistan, on which we will have a look, is merely a book of mistakes made up of this outstanding work.
