‘Ali ‘Imadu d-Din Nasimi (Azerbaijani : Seyid li Imadddin Nsimi , Arabic), often known as Nesimi, (1369 Unknown) –1417 skinned alive in Aleppo ) was a 14th-century Azerbaijani or Iraqi Turkmen urufi poet. Known mostly by his pen name (or takhallus ) of Nesîmî, he composed one divan in Azerbaijani, one in Persian, and a number of poems in Arabic. He is considered one of the greatest Turkic mystical poets of the late 14th and early 15th centuries and one of the most prominent early divan masters in Turkic literary history.
