Modernity, Sexuality, and Ideology in Iran: The Life and Legacy of Popular Iranian Female Artists (Modern Intellectual and Political History of the Middle East)

by KamranTalattof (Author)

Synopsis

Makes a compelling argument that, despite revolutionary upheaval, the ideals of modernity remain remote in Iran due to the absence of a modern notion of sexuality. Talattof illustrates his argument through the life of Shahrzad, a celebrated stage and screen actress, dancer, journalist, and published poet who eventually became imprisoned and later homeless in the streets of Tehran.
