Persian poetry is famed for the richness of its heritage, with many classical poets such as Rumi and Hafez read internationally. But little is known about how contemporary Persian-language poets enrich and enliven the tradition today.
At an evening of Persian poetry reading, poets Azita Ghahreman, one of Iran's foremost female poet of her generation and Reza Mohammadi one of the most exciting of a new generation of Afghan poets to have emerged since the demise of Taliban control will read from their poetry. This will be followed by a reading of their work in translation by Dooley and Laird, two of the most renowned English language poets today, with Julia Bird of the Poetry Translation Centre moderating.
