He was born in Tehran in September 1926. His well-known family was known for their poetic legacy and, while his father held administrative positions, his school years were divided between Tehran and Mashhad. With the outbreak of World War II, his family moved to Tehran and the young Moshiri continued his studies at Dar-ul Funun and later at the Adib institute. During these years, his first poems were published in progressive magazines such as Iran-e-Ma (Our Iran). This was the beginning of the literary journalism career that Fereydun followed for more than thirty years. In 1946, Moshiri joined the telecommunications department, where he worked until his retirement. In 1954, she married Eqbal Ajavan, who was a painting student at the University of Tehran.
Before becoming a poet, Fereydun Moshiri was a journalist and this occupation allowed him to meet the scholars of Persian language and literature: Alameh Dehkhoda and Dr. Moein. Moshiri began composing poems by publishing his volume of poems entitled “Teshne-ye Tufan” (“Thirst for Storm”) in the spring of 1955 in Tehran. Two years later, this book was revised with the addition of some new poems and published under a new title: “Nayafteh” (Undiscovered). Moshiri applied the free verse typology to his poetry, which means that he used rhymes in an appropriate and rational way and combined them with a new look at the nature, things and people around him, as well as with a delicate feeling, to present his poems with a feature. Moshiri is known for reconciling classical Persian poetry, on the one hand, and the new poetry started by Nima Yushich, on the other. One of the greatest contributions of Moshiri’s poetry, according to some, is the broadening of the social and geographic scope of modern Persian literature. In October 1997, Moshiri read several of his best poems at a meeting at the University of California, Berkeley. He was a true writer, researcher, great editor, and poetry columnist for many magazines and periodicals.
