Biography of Parvin Parvin E’tesami; A shining jewel in the history of Persian literature

Rukhshande Etsami, known as Parvin Etsami, is one of the most famous contemporary poets of Iran. She is known as the most famous female poet of Iran. She was born on March 26, 1305 in Tabriz city. His mother was an educated woman and the daughter of a Qajar era poet. Parveen's father "Youssef Etisam al-Molk" was one of the most famous scientists, orators and translators of his time, who was proficient in Arabic literature, French and Turkish languages and mastered the principles of logic and wisdom. Parveen was the last child of the family and had three older brothers named Abul Hasan, Abul Fatah and Abul Nasr. Parveen's father was elected as a representative of the people of Tabriz in the National Assembly, so Parveen had to migrate to Tehran with his family early in his life. . They encouraged Parvin and nurtured his creativity and talent. Thanks to his father's knowledge, Parveen Etsami mastered both Arabic and English since he was a child.

Etsam al-Molk founded the literary magazine "Bahar" in the second decade of his life, which Parveen regularly participated in. In fact, in the long run, this magazine became the main means of promoting his literary talent in a patriarchal society. The literary meetings in which Yusuf Etesami participated played an important role in the formation of Parvin's political views. When Parvin was only 7 years old, he showed his talent in poetry by writing a few poems, and at the age of 11, He mastered the poetry styles of famous Iranian poets such as Sanai, Saadi, Molana, Khayyam, Hafez and Nasser Khosrow. At the age of 14, he had matured his career and was writing meaningful poems. Two of his father's close friends named Ali Akbar Dehkhoda and Mohammad Taghi Bahar nicknamed Malek al-Shaara, who are famous Iranian poets and linguists, closely monitored Parvin's progress as a poet during their frequent visits with this family.

Malek Sherai Bahar praised Parvin and said: "In Iran, which is the source of literature and culture, seeing distinguished male poets does not surprise anyone, but seeing a woman with such taste and talent and deep poems and It is a rare thing to write well-thought. This is very amazing and demands the utmost admiration and respect.

Etsamul Molk was not satisfied with the amount of knowledge his daughter had acquired from her personal education, and Parveen was not satisfied with the traditional curriculum offered in public and private schools. Tehran was not satisfied either. She entered the American College for Girls, where she learned English and became closely acquainted with western cultures, and graduated in 1303.

He wrote the poem "Seedling of Desire" for his high school graduation from Iran's Bethel School. A song that examines women's struggles through historical, social, philosophical and anthropological themes. This work clearly depicts the depth of Parveen's knowledge. Then after a short stint as a college instructor, he decided to return to his family and devote himself full time to writing poetry.

One of the important events was Parvin Etisami's speech at the school's graduation ceremony entitled "Women and History". This speech is known as one of the most eloquent statements of women's rights in the modern history of Iran. This showed his mastery and complete awareness of the status of women in his era. In this speech, he examines the situation of women in the West and the East and talks about the oppression that has been imposed on women over the centuries. Here are some of her words:

at last, after centuries of suffering, women were able to establish their intellectual and literary rights and thus move closer to their true center. This was the era when the great concepts of women and mothers were realized and the meaning of two words which are the basis of survival and promotion of humanity appeared for the first time. It was about Europe. But in the East, the point of growth of religions and civilizations... not everything was like that. The caravan of happiness recently left this stop and the architect of civilization turned away from these lands... During this time, the situation of Eastern women everywhere was dark and sad, full of torment and pain, prison and slavery. Although many lectures and books have been written to cure this social disease, the only cure for the chronic disease of the East is education. After marrying his wife, he went to Kermanshah. Parveen's husband was the head of the Kermanshah police station and when she married him, he became the Kermanshah police commander. Her husband's military spirit was in complete contrast to Parveen's poetic and tender spirit And this issue caused Parvin's separation from his wife, and Parvin returned to Tehran after the separation.

Prior to Parvin's marriage, his father was against the publication of his poems and considered it inappropriate according to the conditions and culture of that time. He knew, but after Parveen's marriage and his separation from his wife, he agreed to this. With the help of his father, Parveen Etsami published his first book of poetry (Divan) in 1334.

Some of his first known poems were published in Bahar magazine (the first literary magazine in Iran) in 1300-1. After the publication of the first edition of Divan, Etsami worked as a librarian in the library of Danesh Sarai, or the modern Teacher Education University of Tehran. However, his brave and rebellious spirit led him to quit his job in order to devote himself to writing poetry, condemning dictatorship and hypocrisy. One of these poems is "Tears of an Orphan":

One day, a king passed through a passage

A cry of joy rose over every roof and roof

A child asked in the middle. Orphan

What is the radiant Cain that is on the crown of the king

That one answered, how do we know what it is

It is found as a precious possession

A hunchbacked old woman approached and said

This has seen my tears and the blood of your heart

He has tricked us into shepherd's clothing and staff

This wolf has been with the flock for years. It is familiar

The pious man who is a thief of wisdom and property

The king who ate the wealth of the subjects is a beggar

Look at the drop of the orphan's head

To see where the light of the gem comes from

Pervin, what is the use of speaking the truth to a crooked person

Who is such a person who does not speak the truth

Except for your face, which is beautiful and carpets the blood of the heart.

He answered I am also the owner of art. In this book, I also have a role and an effect. Between my fire and I will not burn. It is always above me like the evil sky. This is a sign of danger. This pool of blood. Dirty, whoever is on your way is in danger.

My blood has been spilled and it will be your turn too. Sahar Gahan Ifrist

From that, time taught us to stand up so that we don't fall on our feet, so that our feet and head are still

One looks at the flower and the other says what is the meaning of good and ugly? No matter what you think

No, every breeze that is here will pass over you. It is good for every green and its flower. What is the difference between a tulip and a daffodil, both are pleasant. What is it, flirting?

You are drowned in wire and gold, and I am in the blood of a colored heart. This is where the fire is.

I was not an artist. You didn't see the fate and fate on the hard side. Still, what makes you is Aster. A good fruit is a fruitless life Even though there is no name and no address, it is famous"

You are the constable of your eyes and I see this constable sleeping together.>What did Samand you fall from the precipice?

What do you know about the ways and customs of the market? You did not know the profit and the loss. Count this time

Enlarge this vision of low light

You who have been sleeping for years, open your eyes, you who are lost, interrogate the caravan

Mafrasa with dark voice inside, Miala with shrill mouth. This garden"
