Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on November 5, 1907, that seems to have in mind a fictitious anjoman affiliated with the newspaper Sur-e Esrāfil's (SE), here serving in effect as the managerial board. In the dramatic sketch provided by the verbatim reading of the minutes (a new format for Dehkhodā's satire) they meet under their same Dickensian names to discuss the independence of the press. As the anonymous chairman of the board mentions, the members need no introduction; we already know them as characters in previous Charand-o Parand columns. Totally out of character, though, are Āzād Khan, formerly a confused Kurdish youth from Kerend; Owyār-qoli, a peasant awed by the big city; and Mulla Inek-Ali, mentioned in passing by Dakhow as “a rowzeh-khwān with a sense of humor”.
