Where is My Humanity?


A humorous, yet haunting cartoon by Kaveh Adel, describing today's world! It reminds me so much of the novel "Peter schlemiel, the Man who Sold his Shadow" by Adelbert Von Chamisso, translated by Peter Wortsman. An incredible book on human tragedy.

Read my review of the novel.

In a poem, Kaveh illustrates his drawing:

I looked in my coat pocket,
And my sleeves,
Under my collar,
And around the buttons,
Tried to take off the coat,
but I saw what was not there
