Love has been a most central theme of Persian literature for over a millennium, both in the classical and modern traditions, and has been expressed in Persian poetry through countless ways and a bewildering variety of styles. In his talk in AIAP San Diego, Professor Karimi-Hakkak will share with us his insights into the impressive variety and amazing diversity of manifestations of love in this literary tradition.
