Anas | 2 comments hi

Ramin Hafezi | 1 comments Well, I think the problem is that there are too many to list. since Iranian culture spands +2500 years there are bound to be quite a few classics, especially in poetry. But I would highly recomend "The Shahnameh" by Ferdowsi, either the Dick Davis (2007) or Ahmad Sadri (2013) translation. That help?
