Description

SIMIN HABIBIAN has collected 1001 of the most well known Persian proverbs and has found the equivalent or similar of each in English. She has also included a literal translation of each proverb in English, to help the reader and so that the cultural similarities and differences can be seen. In addition, 1001 Persian-English Proverbs includes 111 more proverbs illustrated. The reader can guess which proverb it refers to. An answer key in the back tells the reader which proverb the illustration represents. The book is suited for those learning Persian (Farsi) and for second generation Iranian-Americans who wish to further expand their understanding of their mother language and culture. The reader who does not read or speak Persian will find it a pleasant read.show more
