The National Library of Czech Republic in Prague will hold an exhibition of Czech literature translated into Persian.
The title of the exhibition is ‘Czech Authors in Persian Translation: Literary Art and Professional Works, Translated and Published in Iran.’ It is slated for release on March 15-April 28 at the library’s exhibition corridor from Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to the website of the library,
The exhibition documents how the Iranian public gradually built up relations with Czechoslovakia and later Czech culture through the mediation of translations of Czech authors into Persian. It is surprising and pleasing at the same time that such a small country can be proud of having so many of its works translated into a geographically distant language.
