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.
