Belonging: New Poetry by Iranians Around the World
Edited and translated by Niloufar Talebi
£14.99 paperback North Atlantic Books (2008)
Belonging is an eclectic and accessible collection of contemporary Iranian poetry, a glimpse at a complex and literary culture, and an elegant introduction to the Iranian of the twenty-first century.
While Western readers may have some awareness of Iranian works thanks to a few breakout successes such as Reading Lolita in Tehran and My Uncle Napoleon, the shadow of war has obscured the fact that Iran has a long and splendid artisitc tradition ranging from the visual arts to literature.
Expertly translated by Niloufar Talebi, these poetic works - including the erotic divertissements of Ziba Karbassi, rigourously formal poetry by Yadollah Roya'i, experimental poems by Naanaam, the powerful polemics of Maryam Huleh, and the personal epic works of Shahrouz Rashid - represent the most diverse collection of new Iranian poetry to date.
