Zahra Karimipour’s poetry paints a nostalgic picture of life in 1950s Boroujerd, a small town in the west of Iran. The realities of life in Boroujerd reveal a picture of a preindustrialized society, where life had not been touched by advanced machinery; life was simple, but vibrant.
Karimipour’s memories of other places in Iran such as Tehran and the Caspian Sea are emotional accounts of her reflections on endearing memories. Her poem “Oh, Caspian,” shows her longing for the times she visited the Caspian Sea; her poem “Ah, Tehran,” reveals her regret of losing a city to population explosion and urbanization.
