With Iran at the crossroads, Prof. Safawi and Dehlvi investigate and evaluate the cultural situation in Iran, vis-à-vis literature, film and art, and the gradual change in people’s perceptions since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The mediums of literature, art and film have always been, worldwide, explicit or implicit expressions of and comments upon the socio-cultural phenomena of their times. Employing a long-term innovative perspective, the writer and the artist perceive things as they are and impart them with a meaning impregnated with new possibilities. Iranian literature, film and art, post-revolution is a real presence, speaking of certain turns and trends in the sensibilities of this age of drastic, candid confrontations in Iran.
Revolution and Creativity analyses the artistic output of a period in which the alliance between the literary/artistic expression is perhaps more closely associated with social, political and cultural fluctuations in Iran than it ever has been.
