This week’s poem is 'Night Demon' by Azita Ghahreman from Iran. This is from a set of new recordings we made of Azita reading her poems in October 2018 when she was in the UK to launch her new book 'Negative of A Group Photo' published by the PTC and Bloodaxe Books.

First, you can hear Azita tell us a bit about the poem and read the original text in Persian, then her poet-translator Maura Dooley will read her translation in English.

You can buy the book 'Negative of A Group Photo' from the PTC online:
