Freydoun Farokhzad: Another Season
Freydoun Farokhzad: Another Season: A Bilingual Edition with Critical Introduction, Annotations and Archival Material.
Edited and Translated by Nima Mina
Mehri Publication, 2019
"In life, Freydoun Farokhzad met a violent tragic end. In death he has been fortunate to have found a translator as talented and erudite, as disciplined and dedicated as Nima Mina. He brings to this resurrecting project the acute aesthetic sensibilities of a literary critic and a concert guitarist, the eye for details of a scholar, the impressive linguistic acumen of a polyglot and a Sherlock Holmesian affinity for finding and tracing clues. Farokhzad’s celebrity fame has long overshadowed his deserved reputation as a serious poet in the German language and it is his, and our, good fortune that an artist scholar, and a sleuth literary critic has undertaken the task of resurrecting Farokhzad’s poetic personality from his entertainer persona."
