|Reza Mohammadi||Azita Ghahreman||Shakila Azizzada|
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.
The Poetry Translation Centre's Persian Poets' Tour presents three prominent Persian-language poets and their translators: Azita Ghahreman (translated by Maura Dooley), Reza Mohammadi (translated by Nick Laird) and Shakila Azizzada (translated by Mimi Khalvati), for a series of five readings this summer in Manchester, Cardiff, London, Edinburgh and Ledbury.
