Overview

Goli Taraqqi's Winter Sleep (Khab-e Zemestani) illustrates in an unusual and symbolic manner the disorientation and "anomie" resulting from Iran's disruptive modernization process, and delves into the individual psyche of the average urban Iranian of the 1960s. Anyone who has experienced or observed an excessively rapid transition to "modern" lifestyle in a developing country, will recognize the loss of traditional values and cultural heritage, and the resulting disorientation of the individual. Readers will appreciate Taraqqi's unique insights, evoked with entrancing Jungian symbolism.
