Abstract:   (2575 Views)
Tarikh-e Adabiyat-e Dastani-e Iran[1] by Hassan Mirabedini has been essentially the result of his study on the evolution of fiction writing during his years in the Academy of Persian Language and Literature. This institution has already published another version of this book in two volumes in 2008 and 2012. After some time, a new version of this book in one volume was published with drastic changes by Sokhan Publication, edited by Ahmad Samiei (Gilani). This book has examined the formation and various incidents of Persian fiction from its inception to 1953. Here, I briefly examine the structure, methodology, innovations, and the relevance of this book to the future studies. This investigation examines less discussed subjects such as the influence of travelogues and folklores on the formation of Persian fiction, the preface of the first Persian novels, religious novels, detective and criminal stories, etc.
