Selected Poems

From the publisher:

This selection covers Mimi Khalvati’s range, from the ambitiously wrought early poems, full of Persian and personal shadows, through to the meditations in the long sequence “Entries on Light”. She brings distinct formal and tonal elements of Persian and Islamic provenance to her poetry, as well as a mature eroticism and a feeling for nature. She is partial to the long poem built out of distinct parts, the sequence or series, from “Plant Care” in her first book to “Entries on Light” itself.
