Forugh Farrokhzad was an influential Iranian poet and film director. She was a controversial modernist poet and an iconoclast, feminist author. Farrokhzad died at the age of 32 due to a car accident.
She published Reborn in 1964. Her poetry at that time varied significantly from former Iranian poetic traditions.
Farrokhzad’s strong feminine voice became the focus of much negative attention and open disapproval, both during her lifetime and in posthumous reception of her work.
Emphasizing human issues, she also calls for a recognition of women’s abilities that goes beyond the traditional binary opposition
The crow is a symbol of blackness and depression, and these can be felt in Forough’s poems and personal life, and of course she was smart, that’s why I have added this symbol to this character. I made this piece with digital lithography and pop art elements.
