About The Persian Poetry project

Welcome to our site! We are involved in translating a range of texts from across the Persian canon: the poetry of Bijan Elahi (1945-2010) at present, as well as classical texts by Khaqani Shirvani (d. 1299), and critical texts by Mirza Fath-Ali Akhundzadeh and Abd al-Rahim Talibuf. We seek to make the major works of Persian literature available to English speaking readers.
