    Abstract:
    Through offering an ethnography of a group of educated, middle-class women who “had been attending weekly Qur’an and classical poetry classes for years” (xii), the volume shows that poetry and prayer are companions in the cultural history of Iran. It attempts to answer the question, “What does this companionship mean for forms of religiosity in Iran?” (xiv). It consists of an introduction, four chapters, a conclusion, a glossary, notes, a bibliography, and an index.
