About the Author

Olga M. Davidson is a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations at Boston University.


Many have forgotten the role of the gosan in oral epic literature. To believe that Persian poetics is only retelling what they learned in a book is to hold that old accentual meter is really newly borrowed from Arabic, which is hardly right. Dr. Davidson has well explained this in her revised book.
--Richard N. Frye, Harvard University
