Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on August 22, 1907, featuring a letter where Dehkhodā does not merely show off his knowledge of Persian folklore and popular superstition but also demonstrates his sympathetic understanding of the dimensions of the social straitjacket imposed on Iranian women. However loving and caring of their children and intuitively in tune with adolescent psychology, these veiled “captives of the sack” were denied free access to education and support in the public sphere (by financial and patriarchal restrictions sanctioned by long social tradition and reinforced by religious rulings). The column also includes a reply to the letter; a piece on domestic politics; and another on Razi-ye Ghaznavi and other Indian mystics.

Keywords:   Persian folklore, superstition, Iranian women, domestic politics, Razi-ye Ghaznavi, Indian mystics, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
