Birth: 1906, Iran
Death: 1988, Iran

The first Persian to write a significant collection of poetry in the Turkish language (the Azari dialect). Born in 1906 in Tabriz, he received his elementary education, including the Divan of Hafez, under his father's supervision. Shahriar's first formal education was at the Motahari Secondary School in Tabriz. He subsequently studied at the Darolfonun (Tehran's Polytechnic School) in Tehran. Although he studied medicine in college, he dropped out just before getting his diploma and went to Khorasan, where he found a job as a notary public and bank clerk. Initially he published his poems under his given name, Behjat, but later chose the name Shahriar.

Shahriar was a talented calligrapher, played the setar very well, and had a keen interest in music.
