Abstract: 

The first political story after the Islamic Revolution of Iran is probably Sellul-e hejdah by Darvishiyan. The work mirrors the author’s memories of the prison and ideological armed struggles. In addition, this text is the first story by the author after victory of the Islamic Revolution and can be considered as the first political story after the revolution. A study of the various levels of this story shows that Sellul-e hejdah, in spite of being a memoir, is one of the best examples of political fiction. The dominant radical discourse of the 80s [1360s] manifests the confrontation of four different generations. The first generation includes those conservatives who are traditional and religious and are unable to confront the dominant discourse. The second generation includes those conservatives who are not happy with the political decadence but prefer to maintain the situation. The third group relates to those radical freedom fighters that are not satisfied with the status quo and suffer from discrimination and tend to change the society. Finally, the fourth generation includes descendants of the revolutionaries who have little knowledge of the revolution and yet their lives are tied to it.
