“Hedayat is one of the masters of satire in Persian literature of the 20th century, and his satire consists of various forms full of inner motives, including the writer’s anger. This is the provocation of external violence, social retardation, literary backwardness, political bullying, social and literary humiliation pointed toward himself, and finally the anger he feels about himself and the hatred he has for his own shortcomings.”
