MODERN PERSIAN READER. III, ADVANCED.
AVERY, PETER W.; AND OTHERS
THIS ADVANCED MODERN PERSIAN READER IS DESIGNED TO FAMILIARIZE ENGLISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS OF PERSIAN WITH CONTEMPORARY PERSIAN WRITING. IT ASSUMES A COMMAND OF THE CONTENTS OF THE ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE VOLUMES IN THE SAME SERIES (OR THE EQUIVALENT), ALTHOUGH NO SYSTEMATIC "GRADING" HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN IN THE THREE VOLUMES. THE FIRST FIVE SELECTIONS IN THIS VOLUME ARE IN THE FIELDS OF HISTORY, LITERATURE, AND BIOGRAPHY. THE SECOND FIVE ARE FICTION AND THE LAST FIVE MAY BE LABELED "TECHNICAL" OR "MISCELLANEOUS." THE AUTHORS IN THE FIRST TWO GROUPS ARE AMONG THE BEST KNOWN OF MODERN PERSIAN WRITERS. THE SELECTIONS IN THE THIRD GROUP ARE INCLUDED IN ORDER THAT THE VOLUME MAY REPRESENT A CROSS-SECTION OF MODERN PERSIAN WRITING. THE "NOTES AND GLOSSARY" TO EACH OF THE SELECTIONS BEGINS WITH A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR'S LIFE AND WORK. MOST PROPER NOUNS ARE TRANSLITERATED AS WELL AS TRANSCRIBED IN THE GLOSSARY SO THAT THE STUDENT MAY KNOW THE FORM UNDER WHICH THE ITEM IS INDEXED IN SCHOLARLY WORKS. DEVELOPED IN THE DEPARTMENT OF NEAR EASTERN STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, THIS VOLUME IS AVAILABLE FOR $5.00 FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN PRESS, 615 EAST UNIVERSITY, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106.
