A great poet

Postby Marzieh » Sun Jun 19, 2005 8:24 am

This article is dedicated to SOHRAB SEPEHRI, one of the most famous Iranian poets.SEPEHRI was born in Kashan on 2 June,1928;a very talented artist and a gifted poet,SEPEHRI came to prominence with the publication of WATER`S FOOTFALL that was subsequently followed by TRAVELLER and GREEN VOLUME. SEPEHRI has mixed visual images taken from painting with Eastern misticism and produced a kind of poetry that is unique and original.
SEPEHRI traveled to different parts of the world such as:Paris,London,Rome,Venice,Tokyo,Agra and Taj Mahal (India).This travels greatly affected his poetris ,as can be seen in TRAVELLER:
...The journey took me to the gate of my childhood orchard.
Here is another entry of TRAVELLER, translated from Persian.But before that I`d like you to know that you may not find this translated poetry so beautiful ,as I did.But you`d really enjoy them,If you knew Farsi!
...Involved means in love
-and imagine how lonely would the little fish feel
were it involved with the blueness of the infinite sea.
-What sad delicate imagination!...
SEPEHRI died of blood cancer in Tehran in 1980.

MARZIE,

Could you give us a link at Internet where we could read more about that poet, or maybe you could post some more poems.

my favorite poet is Shakespeare. the greatest poet of Renascence. his sonnets about love and pure emotions that resides to everyone in every era. and also i find his language as rich and vivid instrument of Real Master.
