    Presented by the Poetry Translation Centre in partnership with Iran Heritage Foundation


    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.
