|Iranian author studying children and childhood in Sadi’s works||
TEHRAN – Iranian author Manuchehr Alipur is currently working on a research project that will reflect the image of children and childhood in works of the Persian poet Sadi (c. 1213-1291
He plans to publish the results of his study in a book entitled “Image of Child and childhood in Sadi’s Works”.
One of the greatest figures in classical Persian literature, Sadi is the author of Gulistan and Bustan.
“I carefully studied Sadi’s works and noticed that children and young adults and childhood and adulthood have prominent positions in his works,” Alipur told the Persian service of Fars News Agency on Saturday.
“I believe Sadi has written more about children in his works compared to other Iranian authors and poets,” he added.
Alipur has previously written biographies of a number of Persian writers and poets including Sohrab Sepehri, Nima Yushij and Jalal Al-e Ahmad for children and young adults. The books have recently been republished by the Tirgan Company.
