Stream of Deer reflects the voice of a freely-speaking poet from Hazaristan (Afghanistan), Kamran Mir Hazar. Escaping as a boy from his war-torn homeland, he grew up as a victim of ethnic prejudice in Iran. After the fall of the Taliban, Kamran returned to Afghanistan, hoping to write and publish freely. It brought him praise from liberated people, but attacks from fundamentalists and arrests from the government. He fled with his wife to India, but was forced to leave, and finally granted political asylum in Norway. These poems are part of his story and perception of life as a Hazara.
Poems translated by Marta Núñez Pouzols are from Choros De Ciervos translated by Manuel Llinás and Rafael Patiño Góez.
