“Why is a poem written over 1,000 years ago still not only popular but also up to date, speaking to the modern Iranian audience about issues and ideas that are still important?
Professor Charles Melville and Dr Firuza Abdullaeva’s talk reveals how medieval Persian poetry was illustrated by miniature paintings over the centuries and its themes and images are still adapted and transformed by contemporary artists across the spectrum of theatre, film, ballet and the visual arts.
