We bring you Dr. Many members of his extended family were important state officials, political leaders and army generals, both in the 19th and 20th centuries.

In Books The Blind Owl has been one of the rarest books that impressed me deeply since I first read it. The Blind Owl will make you want to read specific sentences over and over again. It will make you feel like you are reading something out of this world. And Sadegh Hedayat will become one of the people you would wish to know. Advertisements Sadegh Hedayat and his reminder Sadegh Hedayat, who lived between , is one of the modern authors of Iranian literature.
The Blind Owl has been translated into many languages because it is an exquisite book. It influenced a broad audience in the languages in which it was translated and gave the author the reputation he deserved. What impressed me most about Sadegh Hedayat is that he was an exceptional human being.
When he saw the animals being slaughtered during a feast of sacrifice as a child, he stopped eating meat. He never hurt a single living creature, even the ones whom he hated. This is not easy reading or a book in its classical meaning. You cannot put it into categories. So I recommend you to read it as a reminder, not as a novel.
It will remind you of a lot of things. On the surface this work seems to be a tale of doom love, but with the turning of each page basic facts become obscure and the reader soon realizes this book is much more than a love story. Although the Blind Owl has been compare to the works of the Kafka, Rilke and Poe, this work defies categorization. Sadly, this work has yet to find its way into the English pantheon of Classics.
Extensive footnotes explaining Persian words, phrases, and customs ignored in previous translations provide deeper understanding of this work for both the causal reader and the serious student of literature. Best known for his novel The Blind Owl, he was one of the earliest Iranian writers to adopt literary modernism in their career.
Reading this book contributed to these challenges:.

Consumed with death, decay, sexual obsession and frustration. After finishing the last page it sits heavy in the gut. And then, as you start to unwind the experience, it takes on an eerie, impressive, surreal quality—no less dark—but unlikely to easily slip from the imagination once wedged there. A classic of twentieth century Iranian literature, The Blind Owl was composed during the latter years of the oppressive reign of Reza Shah and first published in in Bombay where the author, writer and intellectual Sadegh Hedayat was studying. The influence of writers like Jung, Rilke, Poe and most notably, Kafka is strong, but this absurdist tale seems to be driven by its own cluster of existential horrors. It can, and has been analyzed, symbolism examined, but that seems less interesting to me having finished the book. The novella is presented as a confession, the narrator feverishly scrawls out his account, addressing it to an imagined confessor, a shadow on the wall of his room that resembles an owl.
