The Poet's Daughter: Malek o'Shoara Bahar of Iran by Parvaneh Bahar and Joan Agh
The Poet's Daughter: Malek o'Shoara Bahar of Iran and the Immortal Song of Freedom by Parvaneh Bahar and Joan Aghevli
A timely first English-language account of Iran's internationally revered champion of democratic values and King of Poets. Iranian demonstrators chant two songs: One is Morghe Sahar (Bird of the Morning) which Bahar wrote in jail, the other an anthem of Bahar's poems set to music. His daughter provides an intimate portrait of their life in Iran, and her activism in the USA beginning with our civil rights challenges of the 1950s/60s.
