Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 1934, Dast-Pish, a high-profile figure in the Azeri literature, was also the translator of numerous Turkish plays and poets to Persian.
Offering condolences on the death of Dast-Pish, Abdollah Bahrolloumi, the director general of Culture and Islamic Guidance of Ardebil Province, was full of praise for the late poet, “whose works reflected the solidarity among Iranian tribes.”
“Dast-Pish dedicated his whole life to the literature and art of Azarbaijan and Iran, and is left with several precious poem collections,” he added.
