Review of Belonging, by Niloufar Talebi
January 10, 2011
In 2008 Niloufar Talebi, the Iranian who founded the Translation Project, published a bi-lingual collection of poems written in Persian by poets around the world who, at different times and for different reasons, left Iran after the Revolution of 1979. It's an excellent translation of varied works that offers us a taste of the rich work being done by Iranians in exile. You can find my review of it in Issue #4 of HROnline, the online version of The Harvard Review, edited by the wise and talented Christina Thompson.
