Iran's Contemporary Poetry with Hushang Ebtehaj(Sayeh)

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 at 2pm - 4pm

Location: UCSD Center Hall

This event is in the past.

Association of Iranian American Professionals of San Diego (AIAP) and Iranian STudent Association (ISTA) proudly presents Hushang Ebtehaj (with the pen name of H. E. Sayeh) at UC San Diego for a talk on Iran's contemporary poetry followed by Q&A. The lectue will be in Farsi.
About Sayeh:

Having dedicated himself to his art for six decades, Sayeh (Amir Houshang Ebtehaj) has shown great perseverance in writing unfettered poems. A renowned poet of conscience, he has been an inspirational and unstoppable force for his country and its people in the age of totalitarian governments exercising brutal and vicious political, social and religious control over Iranian citizens. His deceptively simple poems - loaded with sublime allegories, penetrating ironies, visual images, sober elegies, literary allusions and masterly juxtapositions - evoke powerful mental pictures. The wide spectrum of his poetic work ranges from classic rhymed lyrics (ghazals) to modern blank verse delving into the Iranian psyche.
