A Modern Persian Prose Reader.
Kamshad, H.
This volume of Persian language texts is designed to accompany the author's "Modern Persian Prose Literature" (Cambridge,1966), and contains representative passages from the works of the more important Iranian writers of the last 100 years. The selections, from 26 different sources, are intended to familiarize the foreign student with both the main trends and the style of the writings of the period. Except for certain omissions and some minor additions to punctuation, the original texts have not been changed. Each group of extracts is prefaced by a brief account of the life and writings of the author, with emphasis on the works from which the passages are taken. References to related sections of texts are provided at the end of each extract. Biographical and cultural notes and a glossary conclude the volume. (AMM)
