A would-be Singaporean novelist's blog

The Eagle by Parviz Natel Khanlari

And since I’m a bit lacking in posts this week, here’s something else.

The Eagle by Parviz Natel Khanlari, translated by Iraj Bashiri.

“Death, immediate, in the firmament today,
Is worth a hundred lives enmeshed in decay.”

Iranian poetry (i.e. Persian literature), not quite the usual stuff I’ve come across, but I quite like the exploration of the eagle as a symbolic creature. In the meantime, I’ll try to stay off Twitter (which has been largely unproductive) and work more on my WIP (which is going good, considering that those who’ve read it so far are actually interested in what happens after the middle part).
