The Poetry of Iranian Women
Real and groundbreaking, this anthology edited by Sheema Kalbasi is a breathtaking collection of Iranian women's poems and is an event not to be missed. The Poetry of Iranian Women is full of passionate and vital poems that speak of universal themes with grace, craft, sensual imagery, and sociopolitical angst. This compendium affords a wonderful opportunity to learn what is being written today by women of this ancient Persian culture of the Mid-East cradle of civilization. --Daniela Gioseffi.
