Parvin in translation

A brief note: to whomever came looking for translations of Parvin, to my knowledge there exists but one collection in English, the title of which I shall produce forthwith :

A nightingale’s lament : selections from the poems and fables of Parvin Eʻstesami (1907-41).

Lexington, Ky. : Mazdâ Publishers, 1985.

Get it from the publisher at the thoroughly reasonable price of 10 clams:


Note to self: Don’t Google “Mazda” expecting to find a small publisher of books about Iran at the top of the list. You’ll be disappointed, trust me.
