Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on November 21, 1907, featuring a poem by Dehkhodā, a mokhammas—a five-hemistich strophic form generally used for popular songs. The heading “Literature” (Adabiyāt) for this and a few other sections of Charand-o Parand columns is probably tongue in cheek, since these are all examples of verse in a vernacular style. The Kablā'i addressed here most likely refers to the poet, in character as a contributor to Sur-e Esrāfil, the obvious target of the various subjects of Charand-o Parand's satire, and a frustrated advocate for popular mobilization. The column also includes a piece on the victimization of journalists.

Keywords:   poems, poetry, journalists, mokhammas, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
