Belonging: New Poetry by Iranians Around the World
OverviewNever-before-introduced contemporary Iranian poets are featured in an eclectic and accessible anthology. This work not only introduces the readers to Iranian poets today, but also expands the canon of writing in the Persian language. It brings us the spirit of the Iranian of the 21st Century, citizen of the world. Different from the traditional, non-fiction literature previously published by Iranian writers, the poetry in this anthology varies drastically in style and theme and proves to be relevant to modern world culture. It includes erotic poetry by Ziba Karbassi, formal poetry by Yadollah Royaii, experimental poetry by Naanaam, protest poetry by Maryam Huleh, and personal epic by Shahrouz Rashid.
