Sayeed Saleh Hosseini's vast knowledge of Persian literature especially the works of Hafiz and the Modern Persian poets such as Sohrab Sepehri and his long association with notable literary figures such as Manucher Badiyee; Houshang Golshiri ; Feraidun Moshiri; Houshang Golshiri ;Ahmad Shamlu and other notable figures of Iran's literary society has resulted into him being among one of the popular critics of Modern Iranian poetry and one of the advocates of the Persian language which is manifest in his translations.

Hosseini's translations have been criticized as being too ponderous for the common reader; whereas being works of literature in their original form, Hosseini has always defended his unique translations with the statement that is has striven to create " an equivalent literary masterpiece in Persian" while remaining faithful to the original work.
