A Talk by Sheida Mohamadi, Berkeley March 3, 2013

“Berkeley Lecture Series” Presents:
A Talk by Sheida Mohamadi, Poet and fiction writer
Topic: “The meaning of time in my poetry”

Date: Sunday, March 3, 2013
Time: 4:00 P.M.
 Place: 102, Moffitt
University of California, Berkeley:

“In mythology, time is a nonlinear revolving phenomenon, but in contemporary literature it is about an orderly course of events. Time for a narrator is the time in which she/he lives and can cognitively understand, a time which only finds meaning in ‘before’ and ‘after’; and it is within this chronological time-frame that the narrator can recall and record events. I do the same in my poetry, except for the strong element of nostalgia, the deep longing for the ‘lost time’ and the desire to make those fantasies to come alive in my time.”
