Burying The Past: Iranian Modernity's Marriage to Realism
This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about marriage, modernity, and the connection between law and literature in modern Iran. The book analyzes how the texts of novels were understood both at the moment of their historical moments of enunciation as well as at later moments when their importance was challenged or affirmed through reinvocation and/or by critical response. It focuses on five periods of significance for women's rights activists and historians of the movement.
