Forugh Farrokhzad is arguably one of the most significant Iranian poets of the twentieth century. Born in 1935, she was a poet of great audacity and extraordinary talent. Her poetry was the poetry of protest– protest through revelation– revelation of the innermost world of women (considered taboo until then). She is one of the beloved modern poets of Iran who died in a car crash at 32. Sin: Selected Poems of Forugh Farrokhzad translated and edited by Sholeh Wolpé was awarded the Lois Roth Persian Translation Award in 2010.
