Ghazaleh Alizadeh (Persian: غزاله علیزاده‎) (born 1947, Mashhad, Iran, died 12 May 1996) [1] was an Iranian poet and writer. Her mother was also a poet and writer. She married Bizhan Elahi and they have a daughter called Salma.

She was an extroverted, smart, and energetic student at school. She got her diploma in Humanism from Mahasti High School and at the same time became a vegetarian.

She received her BA in Political Sciences from Tehran University, then went to France to study philosophy and cinema in Sorbonne University. In fact, she initially went to Paris to pursue her PhD in law, but changed her major to Illuminationism and wanted to write her dissertation on Molavi, but she left it due to the sudden death of her father.

She started her literary career with writing short stories in Mashhad. Her major work was the novel Khaneye Edrisiha lit. The Edrissis’ House (خانه ادریسیها). Some of her short stories are: The Crossroad, After Summer, The In-transitory Journey, and her other novels include: Two Landscapes and Tehran Nights. Some of her works have been translated into English by Rosa Jamali

She had cancer and was suffering, therefore tried killing herself twice but was not successful. She finally committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree in Javaherdeh in Ramasar in May 1996. Her body was consigned to earth in Emamzadeh Taher cemetery.

A documentary movie-named Ghazaleh Alizadeh trial- has been produced about her life.[2][3][4][5][6]
