Kerouac Translated into Persian


According to the Iran Book News Agency, Jack Kerouac’s Book of Haikus is being translated into Persian by poet Alireza Abiz.

In the article, Abiz explains a little about Kerouac’s approach to the traditional Japanese form of poetry. “Some of Kerouac’s innovations regard the language. The language of his haikus is simple and close to prose. Also, there is particular emphasis upon seasons in Japanese haikus whereas this element is totally removed from Kerouac’s works.”

The book – for those of you who speak Persian or happen to live in Iran – will be published by Ahang-e Digar Publications.
