Steinbeck's stories hit Iranian book shelves
A collection of stories by John Steinbeck have been provided in Persian by Farzaneh Mozafari. Realism and the use of nature as a fundamental element are the key features of the stories.
IBNA: John Steinbeck won Nobel prize six years before his death in 1968. A prominent American writer, he reached the climax of his career by his Grapes of Wrath which won him a prestigious Pulitzer prize. He wrote 16 novels and had 6 nonfiction works besides five story collections. His Of Mice and Men and the East of Eden are considered some of the world's greatest literary works.
'Chrysanthemum' is the title of the collection translated into Persian by Mozafari. All of the four stories of the collection are featured with superb descriptions of the nature. Steinbeck mingles reality with fiction in the stories to describe social issues.
Set in the 1930's, the Chrysanthemums is the story of Elisa who raises chrysanthemums and yearns for a more meaningful outlet for her strength and latent abilities. Her encounter with an itinerant tinker, at first, brings confidence in herself, but soon that confidence is replaced by overwhelming defeat.
Tandis Publications has published the Persian rendition of Murder in the Iranian book market.
