On February 13, 1967, ForoughFarrokhzad, Iranian contemporary poet died. She was born in 1934 in Tehran. Forough published her first poem ’Captive’ at the age of 17, ’Wall’ in 1956 and ’Revolt’ in 1957.
Her poems reflected the agony and outcry of Iranian woman,the outcry that, with the assistance of deeper perception of the world and the social and political atmosphere of her time, led to composing of her magnum opus,‘New Birth’.
Doubtlessly Forough was one the greatest Iranian contemporary poets who sadly had a short life and pass away in a car accident at 32.
