Comparison of Story Elements in Sa’edi and Alikhani’s Works

Authors : Mahboubeh Khorasani and Mitra Taghipour

Abstract: Regional literature also called domestic literature is one of the sub-branches of literature. This type of literature resulted as a result of the big class difference dominating the city and the village. One can say that regional literature is the thinkers’ and writers’ language of protest to the government of the time. Regionalism originated in the 1330s on the Persian calendar (1951-1960) and flourished the best in the 1340 and 1350s on the Persian calendar (1961-1980). After the evolution of regional literature researchers and experts divided into groups of five, seven and eight schools, studying and pointing out their characteristics. Some of these schools are Khorasan, Azarbaijan, Esfahan, North, Center, West and South schools. The general conclusion is that in the works of both writers magical realism, especially in the area of regional literature is represented very well only with the difference that in Gholamhossein Sa’edi’s stories the reflection of deprivation as well as material, spiritual and cultural poverty is dominant while in Alikhani’s stories usually fear, illusion as well as superstitious and magical beliefs are significant. Regarding the use of story elements it should be said that Alikhani has shown his art in creating settings and atmospheres in his unique way and with his unique language but Sa’edi has shown off in creating favorable characters even in negative roles.
