Houshang Ebtehaj, prominent Iranian poet, dies at 94

Quick Summary

He was born in 1928 in Iran’s city of Rasht, some 240 kilometers (150 miles) northwest of Tehran, the capital.

The poet, Mohammad-Hossein Shahriar, wrote in a letter that Ebtehaj’s detention caused angels to weep on God’s throne.

During the young Islamic Republic’s crackdown on leftists and liberals after the revolution, Ebtehaj landed in prison for nearly a year.
