Hugo’s piece about Prophet Mohammad released in Persian
A long poetry piece by Victor Hugo about the final days of Prophet Mohammad has been rendered into Persian and is published by Beghe Abi.
IBNA: The work is translated by Vida Ramin and edited by Javad Mohaghegh.
Born on February 26, 1802, Hugo is mostly known for his literary masterpieces in Iran like Notre-Dame de Paris (1831) and Les Misérables (1862). However, he was also a prominent poet who published several poetry works during his life.
Originally L’An neuf de l’Hégire (the ninth year of Higera), the piece is published as a book in the Iranian market. It begins with a two-page preface about Hugo and his studies on Islamic and Iranian culture.
A part of the preface reads as follows: “The fact is that Hugo was completely acquainted with the Islamic history and culture and was aware of miniscule details about the prophet whereas he could tell that the prophet did not have more than 20 grey stands of hair as it is certified in historical accounts of the prophet’s life.”
