Fereshte Teyfouri’s writings focussing on Sufi
thought and mystical concepts are presented with the
original Persian texts and an English translation to
introduce her poignant view of existence to a wider
audience. The poetic miniatures muse on existentialist
concepts, stemming from the perspective of her life in Iran
and later Germany – and a visceral sense of not
belonging – but with the dilemmas of alienation and
displacement counterbalanced by the sentiments being
expressed using Sufi terms, but sometimes from the
standpoint of inanimate objects: tar, blotting paper, the
cleansing nature of an eraser.

Fereshte Teyfouri, lecturer in Persian at the
Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat, Munster, Persian author
and editor, translator for the German courts.
