First published in 1968, this volume of Persian language texts is intended
to accompany the author's Modern Persian Prose Literature (Cambridge,
1966). It contains representative passages from the works of major Persian

contextual information to aid the reader's understanding. This accessible
collection will be of value to students of the Persian language and anyone
with an interest in untranslated Persian literature.
