By Claus Valling Pedersen
Harrassowitz Verlag, 2016

See the book at the publisher's homepageThe earliest Persian novels from the period 1910-1925 are examined using literary analyses and historical contextualization. This approach presents the novels - historical and social realist novels and a Utopia - in a completely new light and invites the reader to a new interpretation of the earliest period of modern Persian literature.

Claus V. Pedersen is associate professor of Persian studies, University of Copenhagen, and specializes in modern Persian literature.
