Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths , Sholeh Wolpe's third collection of poems, is a surreal journey of sorrows and sins, of love, ghosts, and Saudi princes, of banishment inside one's own skin. Wild in its leaps and images, these poems explore personal and psychological exile from a marriage, lovers, expectations, and finally, country.
Sholeh Wolpe is the author of three collections of poetry including Rooftops of Tehran , and she is the editor of Breaking the Jaws of Silence, The Forbidden: Poems from Iran and Its Exiles and a regional editor of Tablet & Pen: Literary Landscapes from the Modern Middle East. Her books of translations include Sin: Poems of Forugh Farrokhzad , which was awarded the Lois Roth Persian Translations Award in 2010, and a Persian translation of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself.
