Persian tales

2021 Sep 07

"Persian Tales" is a series of books filled with the centuries-old Oriental wisdom. This collection of parables and stories expresses the immutable truths of human existence. These parables were adapted for young readers by our Iranian colleagues, and then translated from the Persian language and edited by the best Russian Iranian linguists, such as N. Chalisova, L. Lahuti, N. Prigarina, S. Tarasova.

The "Persian Tales" series was launched in 2021 with the support of the Ibn Sina Foundation in cooperation with the Hayyam Cultural Centre. So far, it includes two books - "What do you call the grape?" (Based on "Masnavi" by Jalal ad-Din Rumi, retold by H. Fattahi) and "Halwa and Rainbow" (Based on "Gulistan" by Saadi, retold by Farhad Hasan-zade).

A collection of stories based on Saadi's "Bustan" is expected to be published in late 2021 or early 2022.
