Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on January 23, 1909, featuring a piece entitled “The Speech of Kings Is the King of Speeches.” Safe in Switzerland, having narrowly avoided the same fate as his murdered colleague Mirza Jahāngir Khan, and still grieving, Dehkhodā in his last three satirical columns feels no compunction about mocking the ruler and the Qajar family in frankly insulting terms. Now he freely refers to the royal family's supposed sexual indiscretions, statements that prudence had tempered in his earlier publications. The column also includes a piece on the response of Mohammad-Ali Shah to the clerics of Najaf.

Keywords:   Qajar family, sexual indiscretions, Mohammad-Ali Shah, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
