He was master of thirty languages and made his mark chiefly as a translator of rriental poems and as a writer of poetry conceived in the spirit of oriental masters. Much attention was attracted by a translation of the maqamat of Al-Hariri of Basra (Hariris Makamen) in 1826, Rostem and Suhrab, a story of heroes in 1830, and Hamasa or the Oldest Arabian Folk Songs in 1846.
