This course was an unforgettable experience for me to delve into early classical Persian texts. Ruben provided us with insightful explanations of literature, grammar, and history. He also introduced us to renowned scholars and their works in this field. Although the class was challenging, translating each sentence helped me do a close reading and improve my Persian vocabulary. Indeed It was a good starting point for me to learn and study Persian literature. I hope Aspriantum opens many other Persian literature courses like this.
