Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on May 5, 1908, on the life of Hajji Abbās (the continuation of a column published in SE no. 27, April 29, 1908). This column differs substantially from all other Charand-o Parand items in being less diffuse and more focused and having in every way the makings of a serialized short story or novella. Social criticism—of the ulama and the situation of women—is firmly lodged in the subtext, and the authorial voice-over begins and punctuates the tale at intervals. The life of Hajji Abbās to date is seen in flashback, a retrospective reverie triggered at the end of the first episode by the sight of the hajji's attractive neighbor Roqiyeh.

Keywords:   Hajji Abbā, social criticism, flashback, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
