This is the story of Azar Nafisi's dream and of the nightmare that made it come true. For two years before she left Iran in 1997, Nafisi gathered seven young women at her house every Thursday morning to read and discuss forbidden works of Western literature. They were all former students whom she had taught at university. They were unaccustomed to being asked to speak their minds, but soon they began to open up and to speak more freely, not only about the novels they were reading but also about themselves, their dreams and disappointments. Nafisi's account flashes back to the early days of the revolution, when she first started teaching at the University of Tehran amid the swirl or protests and demonstrations. Azar Nafisi's tale offers a fascinating portrait of the Iran-Iraq war viewed from Tehran and gives us a rare glimpse, from the inside, of women's lives in revolutionary Iran.… (més)

A very nuanced discussion of politics balanced with biographical details with a little literary criticism on the side. pretty neat imo ( )
  jooniper | Sep 10, 2021 |
What I really love about this book are the English lessons that Nafisi was teaching her students in Iran. These moments are interspersed with the drama outside, from the optimism sparked by the thought of overthrowing the Shah, to the horror of the counter revolution. ( )

I loved this book. I've recommended it to people and lent out my copy. Last night at the Goodwill store I took a copy off the shelf and put it in the hand of a stranger. Nafisi has keen insight into both English literature as well as the sociopolitical situation she experienced in revolutionary Iran. Not only did Nafisi give me a glimpse into her country, but her observations about authoritarianism and repression set off eerie mental alarms when I thought about current events in my own. ( )

Speaks to the freedoms we take for granted and that take immense courage in other parts of the world. A memoir of a study group of women in Islamic Iran reading Western classics, the book delves into their lives as they are highlighted by the fiction they are reading. ( )

The charismatic passion in the book is not simply for literature itself but for the kind of inspirational teaching of it which helps students to teach themselves by applying their own intelligence and emotions to what they are reading.

[A]n eloquent brief on the transformative powers of fiction--on the refuge from ideology that art can offer to those living under tyranny, and art's affirmative and subversive faith in the voice of the individual.

A spirited tribute both to the classics of world literature and to resistance against oppression.
