Iranian translator, Ali Ghazanfari, has translated the poems of late Hossein Monzavi into German.
Ali Ghazanfari who won Iran's book of the year award for "Tourandokht" has rendered poems of late contemporary poet, Hossein Monzavi, into German.
He hasn't yet chosen the book's name and publisher. As the poems approximate to the concepts of sensible post modern, he has picked the poems for translating.
He believes that as some the poem's words and concepts are difficult for translating, it requires a great translator.
Hossein Monzavi was born in 1936. He died in 2003 in Tehran due to cancer. Monzavi mostly composed sonatas and new style poetries.
