Sweet Sonnets: 2000

Fifty sonnets ranging from 1985-2000 especially for the lovers of the Traditional style Persian poetry which has been one of the most successful of Shirin’s publication as it was considered unique within the new generation of Persian poets.
Shirin is at home with all the rhymes and rhythms of Ghazal and Rubaei, which is quite rare with the younger generation.

 

The Sad Universality of Oyster: 1999

Shirin’s second selection of poems published in London. Mainly modern poetry and some Ghazals with new colours and scents and a young voice. The main issues are Exile, Social and Political rights for women in Iran, Writers in Prison, and nostalgia of the lost childhood in her motherland in Tehran and Hamedan and Isfahan.

 

Az Vajeh Ta Pendar: 1997

Selection of contemporary poems and sonnets, relating to the years 1982-1997 partly written in Iran and partly in the UK. The first struggle of a young poet with modern poetry is the main issue in the new poems of this book, as Shirin was writing traditional poetry and sonnets from a very early age.
The poet is familiarising herself with the modern imagery and metaphors.
The main subjects are social, political issues of a post-revolutionary Iran, which is affecting the young Shirin’s soul.
