Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Traditionally, Iranian women have been veiled from public view and constrained from public expression. Milani illustrates that in Iran the 19th-century movement to unveil was closely linked to women's emergence as literary figures. This, the first work devoted to the rich literature of the female writers of Iran, is itself an example of great literature from an Iranian female writer. With poetic insight, Milani dis cusses the themes of disclosure and secrecy that have delineated the Iranian woman's universe and characterized her expression. Highly recommended for all literature, anthropology, and women's studies collections.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By D. Pawl VINE VOICE on September 27, 2005
Format: Paperback
Dr. Milani, author of "Veils and Words," gives us a glimpse into the plight and challenge of female Persian writers, as a revolution and an evolution in literary growth and self expression. We learn about how it was considered a subversive (and even deadly) artistic form for women. This was just as controversial as removing your veil (or hajab), for men to get a glimpse at your beauty. Women writing was synonymous with promiscuity and corruption. We are so lucky that Dr. Farzanah Milani introduces us to some of the poems (and poets) that brought this revolution to the forefront of Persian culture.
