1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Cameron Parsa on March 1, 2005
Format: Paperback
Reading Chubak is an examination of the life and works of Sadeq Chubak, one of the most prominent Iranian novelists and short story writers of the 20th century. A landmark in the development of modern Persian short stories and novels, Chubak's work has had a profound influence on the ensuing generations of writers. With his innovations in the language and structure of his stories, Chubak was considered an experimentalist and pioneer in modern Persian prose fiction. Although Chubak's characters are palpably Iranian, in an Iranian social milieu, his stories constitute a microcosmic reflection of the universe, as is the case with any great writer. In fact, his stories have been translated into many languages. In this book the author provides a descriptive analysis of all Chubak's short stories, novels, and plays including a detailed literary examination of The Patient Stone, his magnum opus, within the context of Iranian socio-political history and literature. Furthermore, he examines the life, character, and personality of this important literary artist in the light of his work and also in literary, extra-literary, biographical, social, and political contexts.


M. R. Ghanoonparvar is Professor of Persian and Comparative Literature at the University of Texas at Austin. His books include Prophets of Doom: Literature as a Socio-Political Phenomenon in Modern Iran (1984), In a Persian Mirror: Images of the West and Westerners in Iranian Fiction (1993), and Translating the Garden (2001).
