Eminent Literary Figure Foruzanfar Hailed

Attended by a number of art and culture figures, the awards ceremony of the second Badi’ozzaman Foruzanfar Festival was held in Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art on December 3.
Praising Forouzanfar’s status and culture, art researcher Nasrollah Javadipour said he was unfortunate not to have the opportunity to be a student of the great master and said, “Forouzanfar dedicated most of his lifetime activities doing research on Mawlana and his books are among precious literary works of the country,” Honaronline reported.
Later in the program, the message of Dr. Mehdi Mohaghegh director of Iran Society for the Appreciation of Cultural Works and Dignitaries was read out. The message stated that the “services of Master Forouzanfar to the Persian language and literature are undeniable. Through his abundance of knowledge and of course his powerful writing style, the late professor made the Iranian society independent of the foreign scholars’ works.”
Another part of the ceremony was dedicated to paying homage to several figures in the field of culture and literature. Masoumeh Gholami, Simin Jalali, Alireza Esmaeilpour, Nasrollah Javadipour, Mohsen Mesbah, and Andisheh Fooladvand were among the honorees who received commendation plaques and prizes. Six books by Forouzanfar published by the University of Tehran Press were also unveiled at the event.
Forouzanfar (1904-1970, Tehran) was an Iranian scholar of Persian literature, linguistics and culture, and an expert on Mawlana (Rumi) and his works. He was a distinguished professor of literature at Tehran University.
