Notwithstanding his spare output, with only two volumes of poetry – Diary of House Arrest (Ruznama-ye tab‘id, 2003) and Blue Bicycle (Ducharkha-yi ābī, 2015) – to his name, Iranian poet Hasan Alizadeh has left a poetic signature on modern Persian poetry, distinguished by lyricism and colloquialism. In Alizadeh’s poems, a labyrinthine memory, structured by the intricate architecture of old Iranian bazaars and mosques, continually revises itself in spontaneous narrations of love and death. With an informative introduction placing the poet’s work in context, this evocative translation brings Alizadeh’s two collections into English for the first time.
