Book on Nima Yushij Unpublished Poems

The book ‘Another Hundred Years’ which contains unpublished poems of the late contemporary Persian poet Nima Yushij (1895-1960) has been recently brought out by the publishing house of Academy of Persian Language and Literature.
The academy purchased a collection of documents belonging to Nima from his son, Sheragim Yushij (currently based in the US), in the 1990s and kept it in its library archive, Mehr News Agency reported.
Three years ago the academy started to research the manuscripts in order to publish them. The process began by providing digital images of the documents and categorizing them based on their topics.
In addition to poetry, most of the so-far unpublished manuscripts include stories and plays, as well as reflections on art and literature, memoirs and notes on Nima’s everyday life.
War, poverty, tyranny, love and nature are among the issues Nima has written about in his poems in the newly published book, compiled and edited by literature experts Saeed Rezvani and Mehdi Olyai-Moqaddam.
Nima is considered the father of modern Persian poetry as he founded a new movement in Persian poetry called the ‘new poetry’ also known as ‘Nimaic poetry’ in Iran.
He died of pneumonia in Shemiran, in northern Tehran, and was buried in his native village of Yush, Nur County, Mazandaran Province in north of Iran, as he had willed.
