Charand-o Parand

Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on June 13, 1907, where Dehkhodā introduces another of his specialized types, Meddler, shown here in a first-person composite of the self-interested fixer who, for a consideration, will offer his services to provide a foreigner, the government, or other interested individuals with privileged information or access. His incidental gossip, social contacts, and pious self-justification provide further pretexts for broad social and political satire. The column also includes a piece about an Austrian doctor who invented a steel shield to protect the teeth from falling out, and a reply to a letter dated June 6.
