Description
In this article, I compare William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying and Sadeq Chubak’s The Patient Stone with respect to the theme of death and from the perspective of Existentialism. I argue that despite Faulkner’s influence on Chubak and similarities in their writings, the Iranian modernist novel presents intellectual and aesthetic nuances catering to the domestic material circumstances of its composition. While As I Lay Dying offers a pro- Sartrean and nihilistic notion of mortality, the Iranian novel features a pro- Heideggerian and authenticating view of death. I use this comparison in order to transcend the notion of modern Iranian literature as merely influenced by Western literary models.
