Persian Literature and Judeo-Persian Culture

By: Sorour S. Soroudi
Editor: H. E. Chehabi



Dr. Sorour S. Soroudi (1938-2002) of the Department of Iranian Studies at the Hebrew University began her scholarly career as a specialist in the neglected field of modern Persian poetry. Her studies and translations did much to bring this poetry to the attention of critics and scholars. In later years, Dr. Soroudi turned her attention to Judeo-Persian literature and folk culture. Her continuing literary studies, combined with extensive fieldwork, produced major contributions to the study of the history and culture of Iranian Jewry. This volume, meticulously and sensitively edited by Houchang E. Chehabi, brings together many of Dr. Soroudiís published articles in these two areas. Included in this book is a previously unpublished piece as well as an article that appears here in English for the first time.
