One of Iran's leading female poets, Zhale Qa'em-Maqami (1883-1946) witnessed pivotal social and political changes in Iran during its transition to modernity. Mirror of Dew is the first English translation of her poems. Deeply personal but including social critique, they offer a rare view of the impact of a modern awareness on private lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mirror of Dew is a fascinating collection that demonstrates just how lively a discussion was underway among elite Qajar women about the 'women's question'. These fascinating poems display feminist concerns in a way that we do not find in the poems of Parvin E'teskami, and thought we did not find until Forugh Farrokhzad. An important work for anyone interested in the history of Qajar women.--Franklin Lewis, University of Chicago
This book introduces a remarkable poet who is virtually unknown to all but specialists. The scholarly introduction along with the lyrical and sensitive translations fill serious gaps in our knowledge regarding the participation of women in the literary culture of modern Iran.--Sunil Sharma, Boston University
