Nausea suffuses Persian bookshelves
Nausea, an epistolary novel by the existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, is converted into Persian once again by Mohammadreza Parsayar.
IBNA: "Nausea" – Sartre's first and best-known novel – concerns a 30-year-old dejected historian, who becomes convinced that inanimate objects and situations encroach on his ability to define himself, on his intellectual and spiritual freedom, evoking in the protagonist a sense of nausea. It is widely considered one of the canonical works of existentialism.
Sartre was awarded, though he ultimately declined, the Nobel Prize for literature in 1964. The Nobel Foundation recognized him "for his work which, rich in ideas and filled with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age." Sartre was one of the few people to have declined the award, referring to it as merely a function of a bourgeois institution. He passed away in 1980 after he completely lost his sight.
Nausea was first written in 1938 in French and since then it has been translated to many languages including Persian. Nausea became available in Persian by various translators such as Amir Jaladeddin A'alam, Bahman Khosravi, and Mehrafarid Bigdeli Khamseh.
Mohammadreza Parsayar's Persian rendition of Sartre's "Nausea" is published in 312 pages by Parseh Publishing House.
