TEHRAN – Affinities between Persian poet Sadi (C. 1213-1291) and leading German dramatist and poet Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) will be discussed in a conference to be held at the Book City Institute in Tehran on April 16. 

Sheikh Muslih od-Din Sadi Shirazi (C. 1213-1291) is one of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature famous worldwide for his Gulistan (The Rose Garden) and Bustan.

Friedrich Schiller is a German dramatist, poet, and literary theorist, best remembered for such dramas as “The Robbers” (Die Räuber) (1781), “The Wallenstein Trilogy” (1800–1801), “Maria Stuart” (1801) and “Wilhelm Tell” (1804).

The conference will next be held in Shiraz and will later go to the German cities of Berlin and Weimar.
