Photograph of Jaleh Esfahani, member of the Iranian Centre in Exile. Esfahani, who was born in Isfahan, has been one of the most active female poets in the history of Persian literature. In 1946 Esfahani was the only female poet to attend the first Iranian Congress of Poets and Writers in Tehran, and, with her husband (who was persecuted for his political views), moved to Baku in Azerbaijan where she learnt Russian and Azeri and got a BA from Azerbaijan State University. Esfehan got her PhD in Persian literature from Lomonosov Moscow State University and worked at the Gorky Institute of World Literature from 1960-80. After the turmoil of the revolution in 1979, Esfahani left Iran for London in the 1980s.
