    The quran is classical literature. Who wrote the quran in this style?  Did mohamed get help from poets?

    Someone please clarify

    Salman the Persian wrote a great deal of it. I think one of his nicknames was "Father of the Quran" or something like that. I don't know about his literature training, but Persian culture has historically had a romance with poetry. He was apprenticed to be a Zoroastrian priest, and that would have required knowledge of the Avestas. You can find some Zoroastrian texts here:

    I hope that helps!

    The quran was revealed in parts over a period of 20 years. how did mohamed manage to get stuff in literature when it was revelation in parts?

    I don't know what you mean about "get stuff in literature" but it is well known that Muhammad had scribes write down what he said were revelations. Literature means writings. Classical means a certain style, which is usually the style of a certain time.
