Tarzi Afshar

Tarzi Afshar (Persian: طرزی افشار‎, Azerbaijani: طرزی افشار) was a 17th-century Safavid poet who wrote in the Persian and Azerbaijani languages. He is the author of a small divan of "humorous poems", written in an amalgam of Persian and Azerbaijani known as Tarzilik.[1] Later, for some time, this type of poetry became relatively popular at the Safavid court in Isfahan.[1] Tarzi Afshar originally hailed from Rey.[1]
