Passive Nihilism in “Boof e koor” By: Dr. Sayed Kazem Moosavi Fatemeh Homayoon Abstract: Nihilism in the beginning part of “boof e koor” and its similarity with Nietzsche’s nihilism is an issue that has already been explored by writers of this paper. Despite the fact that Nietzsche’s influence is not deniable in Hedayat’s work, this nihilism radically different from what Nietzsche recognizes as “active nihilism” and is realized in Zarathustra. The distinction between the Narrator and Zarathustra can be investigated in the second part of “Boof e koor”, which is in fact the practical nihilism of this book. This paper unearths the similarity and distinction dimensions between Zarathustra and the Narrator of Boof e koor and explores “passive nihilism” especially in second part of this book. The paper also argues that although the Narrator has mentally reviewed Nietzsche’s argument, he approves of it, and, in the first part, thinks about killing the celestial girl; this girl's deep influence - that is in fact a realization of the extraterrestrial world- and narrator's passion deter him from being able to practically obliterate influence of the prostitute’s presence, that is the social symbol of the celestial girl, from his life.
