Iran’s veteran writer and translator Ezatollah Fouladvand received the First-Degree Art Certificate in translation of literary texts on the occasion of National Pen Day on July 5.
Iran marked National Pen Day on July 5, honoring authors, writers and literary figures.
The day was first marked on the Persian calendar in 2002 by Iran Pen Society and the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution.
The ceremony was held at the writer’s house with the presence of the Advisor of Art Credit Fund’s CEO, IBNA wrote.
Hosseinipour said that Fouladvand’s deep knowledge of history and his mastery of Persian literature have made him a unique figure.
The translator said that Iran’s younger generations need to be more familiarized with the wonderful poems of Persian poets including Sa’di, Ferdowsi, and Hafez.
Born in 1925, Fouladvand received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees from Columbia University in New York City.
The translation of ‘Kant’s philosophy’ was selected as the book of the year in the eighth edition of Iran’s Book of the Year Awards.
