A timely first English-language account of Iran's internationally revered champion of democratic values and King of Poets. Iranian demonstrators chant two songs: One is Morghe Sahar (Bird of the Morning) which Bahar wrote in jail, the other an anthem of Bahar's poems set to music. His daughter provides an intimate portrait of their life in Iran, and her activism in the USA beginning with our civil rights challenges of the 1950s/60s.
