From the Back Cover:

'There are no walls around the house here.' I wrote in my diary, in an entry dated December 24, 1967. This was a few days after my arrival in America. It took me years to realize that in America other kinds of walls, mainly invisible, existed. I had to learn about their presence, respect their sovereignty, abide by their rules. I could not neglect them, trespass them. I could not disregard them. This meant not only learning the English language but also mastering the metalanguage, the verbal and nonverbal codes of interactions, the different systems and styles of communication.

About the Author:

Milani teaches Persian language and literature and women's studies at the University of Virginia.

Book Description Syracuse Univ Pr (Sd). Hardcover. Condition: New. 295 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 5.9in. x 1.0in.This is the first book in any language about the writing of women in Iran. For centuries any sense that there could be a literary tradition among women was suppressed. Since the middle of the 19th century, however, a number a of pioneering women have defied the traditional order to produce poetry and novels of the highest quality; but many of them have paid for their courage with accusations of immorality, promiscuity, heresy and even lunacy. This book traces the history of Iranian women writers of poetry, fiction and autobiography, in the context of social and cultural practices, particularly those relating to veiling and unveiling, silence and revelation. The author pays particular attention to the lives and works of Tahereh QorratolAyn, Parvin Etessami, Forugh Farrokhzad, Simin Daneshvar and Tahereh Saffarzadeh. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9780815625575
