A group of 60 professors specialized in English literature from different countries attended this meeting."
He added, "The most important axes of this mini-lecture are English literature and how to employ the mechanism of return to life and the return of hope, as three sections have been included:
The first: With regard to how people communicate in society and the multiplicity of incentives.
The second: literary readings, including: (theater, poetry, and novel).
The third: a side for family support, and we decided that it should be the literature of wisdom that should be included in the literary works that deal with the Holy Qur’an and the literature of the imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them)."
Al-Mousawi continued: "The conversation also revolved around important international plays, including the play (The Immortal Graves), which is a play about the Speicher massacre in which many of the righteous martyrs were killed, in a literary dialogue style based on the Taf tragedy and the manifestations of the voice of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and whoever was martyred along his side."
