Sohrâb Sepehrî (October 7, 1928 – April 21, 1980) was a notable modern Persian poet and a painter. He was born in Kashan in Isfahan province. He is considered to be one of the five most famous modern Persian (Iranian) poets who have practised “New Poetry” (a kind of poetry that often has neither meter nor rhyme). Sohrab Sepehri was also one of Iran’s foremost modernist painters. Sepehri died in Pars hospital in Tehran of leukemia. His poetry is full of humanity and concern for human values. He loved nature and refers to it frequently. The poetry of Sohrab Sepehri bears great resemblance to that of E.E. Cummings.
