Abstract: 
Mahmood Dowlat Abadi is the greatest prose writer of Post-Revolution Iran. He achieved a rich and elegant prose by combining the possibilities of different literary genres and dialects of Persian in the past and present, such as the plain prose of the Samanid era, the possibilities of ancient literary and poetical language, extracts from contemporary literary language, selections from the dialect spoken in Khorassan and his own linguistic innovations. In Kalidar, he concurrently illustrates the three historical periods: 1. pastoralism and nomadism 2. agriculture and feudalism, and 3. urbanism and capitalism. Thus, he highlights the simultaneous existence of these periods, which he describes as "the passed life of the aged", depicts the resistance of traditional systems against the law of change and evolution, and portrays the means of livelihood, thought and culture governing these systems (of which language is a constituting part) in a romantic, epical, emotional and gloomy atmosphere.
