One of Iran's foremost poets and among the few popular women poets, Simin Behbahani began writing poetry at age 14 and was first published in 1951. A nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1997, she was also awarded a Human Rights Watch-Hellman/Hammet grant in 1998, and similarly, in 1999, the Carl von Ossietzky Medal, for her struggle for freedom of expression in Iran. This volume serves as an excellent introduction to her work. Includes full English translations by Ismail Salami, side by side with the original Persian (Farsi) text.
