Quick Overview

Affectionately known as Moh among colleagues
and friends, Mohammad Reza Ghanoonpoarvar
has been a prominent figure in the field of
Persian language and literature for the past
thirty years. He is credited with pioneering
work in the interpretation and analysis of
contemporary Iranian culture and creating
a vast reserve of scholarship on many of its
aspects including fiction, film, and culinary arts.
This volume treats of a range of contemporary
phenomena in Iranian and Persianist studies
including the emerging trends in fiction and
creative writing in light of vicissitudes in
the social and political atmosphere of Iran,
approaches to the publication of classical
Persian literature in Central Asian republics,
as well as developments in cultural mores and
approaches to doctrinal issues. It is a tribute
by some among Ghanoonparvar’s numberless
admirers to mark the occasion of his recent
retirement from the University of Texas as
Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature.
