    Abstract:
    As Seyed-Gohrab rightly mentions in the introduction to this volume, “poets and writers are so essential in the turbulent history of twentieth-century Iran that any history of modern Iran neglecting the role of literature ... would be seriously incomplete” (14). This volume, focusing on the second half of the twentieth century, provides a history of the period through analysing the relation between writers and the state. It consists of a prologue, an introduction (by Seyed-Gohrab), eight chapters, notes, a bibliography, and an index.
