About this title


The fourteen "story-poems" in this book depict snapshots of fleeting moments, much like a photograph captures a moment in passing. The collection's title Dreaming of Dreams refers to the poet's impression of these moments as almost dream-like experiences - some of which are more reminiscent of a nightmare than a dream.

About the Author:

Samsum Kashfi was born in Estahban, Iran in 1955. His first poems were published in his high school newsletter. In 1973, when he entered university, he began his literary efforts by writing a series of literary reviews and programs for radio. But poetry is his true love and he considers himself an eternal student of the school of poetry. Kashfi immigrated to Canada in 1987 and since then he has been very active in promoting Iranian culture outside of the country and campaigning for freedom of expression and thought in Iran.

To date, Samsum Kashfi has published the following:

1. "Zir-e-Setareye Sobh" (Under the Morning Star)

2. "As Sar-e Divaar" (From the Top of the Wall)

3. "Haalaa Dobareh Seda" (Now The Sound Once Again)

4. "Jaan e Del e Sher" (Critical Reviews of Esmail Khoi's Poetry)

5. "Sigh at 5", a volume of poetry in English 

6. "Va Man Keh Insooy e Gosalam" (And I Who Dwell on this Side of the Crevice)

7. "Zani Keh Toei" (The Woman You Are)

8. "Raghsi Chonin" (A Dance of this Kind)

9. "Beh Ghaafieh Aabi" (In Blue Rime)

10. "Sonboleh Dar Kharman e Maah" (Spike in Stack of the Moon)

11. "Taablo-haye Samsum Kashfi" (Samsum Kashfi's Tableaus)

12. "Roya ye Roya" (Dreaming of Dreams) 

Kashfi also contributes articles to various Persian-language publications and Internet sites on a regular basis. He has served as the poetry editor of the "Iranians" weekly newsmagazine since 1999.
