24,80 

Ahmad Schamlu was not only one of Iran’s most important poets, he was also an author, man of letters and translator. In addition he had a pronounced political awareness which not infrequently led to difficulties with both government and censor. Counting Adunis among others as a friend, he continuously expressed his opinion and artistically criticized not only the Iranian government but also cast a critical eye on society and religion. Schamlu was also one of the first in Iran to establish the so-called white poetry, a style less concerned with the external rhythm of a poem than in creating an ‚internal‘ rhythm. Many Iraninan poets thence did likewise. Schamlu‘s particular poetic style which inspired the release of this collection creates strong images but also stimulates reflection.
