PSEUDO-POSTMODERNISM: A CRITIQUE OF METAFICTIONAL TECHNIQUES IN BIVATAN

 
Author(s):  GHAFARI SAHAR*
 
* TEHRAN UNIVERSITY
 
Abstract: 

The novelty in typography coupled with narrative techniques has turned Bivatan (Tehran, 2008) into a quasi-metafiction, i.e. a story which explores the process of its own construction. While in Bivatan the author is supposedly trying to produce a metafictional effect, a closer investigation into the novel will prove this claim void. In fact, Amirkhani’s novel fails to step into the realm of postmodernism.
