Italian author Antonio Tabucchi

"Italian author Antonio Tabucchi died on Sunday, March 25, in Lisbon, his second home for many years.
Born in Pisa in 1943, Tabucchi, the son of a horse trader, was one of the finest voices in the European literature. He was the author of novels, short stories, essays, and plays, as well as the renowned translator of FernandoPessoa."
On September 2008, in  Chicago International Film Festival, I saw Requiem directed by Alain Tanner. Mesmerized by the  film I was drawn  to the mysterious poetic world of Fernando Pessoa, the Portuguese poet. A world I am enchanted by ever since...
Read a translation of his poem "Actor" from French into Persian by Mahasti Shahrokhi.
