Abstract:   (2352 Views)
Novel is the only field of literary production that not only does not have to comply with abstract social and philosophical thinking but also, unlike poetry, does not develop a life of its own independent of everyday life. As a result, it has the maximum capacity for the representation of quotidian life. This paper seeks to criticize the sociological capital of female characters in the novel Del-e foulad by Moniru Ravanipour. The theoretical approach of this paper is based on the theories of the famous French philosopher and anthropologist Pierre Bourdieu (1930 - 2002). In addition to a Marxist notion of economic capital, Bourdieu believes that there are other forms of cultural, social, and symbolic capital. Employing Bourdieu’s theory, this paper studies the variety of women’s capital in the aforementioned novel. The results of this study suggest that women’s economic capital has a downward trajectory. Also in the production and reproduction of symbolic capital women are facing a crisis of infertility. Their social capital also suffers from different forms of systematic violence. It is only their cultural capital which shows a dynamic progress.
