Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on November 14, 1907, where once again, using the epistolary form, Dakhow mocks the convoluted writing style of the clerics—a mixture of Persian and Arabic—which was often incomprehensible to the ordinary reader. He captures the clerics' impatience with any perceived criticism of their actions, and in the shaykh's garbled Persian version of the threatening missive fulminates against this column's recent aside on clerics' sexual indiscretions in their seminaries.
