The Woman Portrayal in the Works of Iranian Novelists

Dr. Mojgan Eyvazi 

Abstract
The present study shows categorization of female portrayals throughout some Iranian novels including: Paradise Hall by Safavi, Nomad Next to the Fire by Ravanipour, and I Turn off the Lights by Pirzad based on Showalter’s model of gynocriticism that regards female portrayals as grouped into three stages.: feminine, feminist, and female stages It can be concluded that Paradise Hall reflects a feminine writing in which a traditional portrait of woman is given. Nomad Next to the Fire is based on feminist writing in which women attempt to break with the patriarchal rules and traditional women. I Turn off the Lights matches with female writing in which the female characters reach selfdiscovery and awareness.
