by H.E. SayehThis compelling selection is the first to span fifty years of H.E. Sayeh's bearing witness to a turbulent Iranian century, especially the national crises which followed the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the CIA-led coup d'état of 1953. Sayeh shows tremendous range, from the inward, spare lyric to bardic incantations that roll off the tongue and resonate with the voice of the whole nation, blending traditional Persian verse in the spirit of Rumi and Hafez with issues of contemporary Iranian society. Chad Sweeney and Mojdeh Marashi have delivered exquisite translations of this important Iranian poet.
