Abstract: 

During the history, political and social events have always influenced myths. One of the most important contemporary events which has influenced political, social, cultural and literary structures of Iran is the 1953 coup d'etat in the country. After the coup d'etat, Iranian contemporary novelists, by avoiding direct expression, used an ambiguous, symbolic and mythical language for expressing social problems and informing the masses and intellectuals. Suvashun, written by Simin Daneshvar (1921 -2012), is one of the most prominent Persian novels which by using national and religious myths, reflects the social and intellectual state of Iranian people after the 1953 coup. Daneshvar recreates the mythical characters, narrations and situations and combines them with Islamic and Iranian ones. By using descriptive and analytic methods, based on mythical criticism, this article tries to study the reflection of myth in Suvashun.
