TEHRAN, (SCIB) - Razieh Tojjar, author of “Daffodiles”? said that the revolutionary writer is not after art for art’s sake because he has to fulfill a purpose with his writings. In an interview with Shahed reporter, Tojjar stressed that one can not ignore our heritage of revolutionary literature. “The literature of revolution exists and is alive. It has gone through its own trials and errors but still lives on. The literature of the past 3 decades has a distinctive feature that sets them apart from their pre-revolutionary counterparts.”? she said. “Literature of Revolution is not very preoccupied with form”? the short story writer said. “Flame and Night”? writer identified one of the most prominent features of the literature of revolution as the reader always being placed ahead of the artist. “Post-revolutionary literature touches very tangible subjects. It addresses issues such as identity, supernatural, etc”? Tojjar pointed out. “In the past 3 decades, even the women have experienced the war; although they might not have experienced it first hand in the front. I would always encourage my wife to join the front. The war gave us new ideals. We started thinking of our nation and of our homeland in a different manner. They began to assume a lot more value. The revolution and the war became second-nature to us and created a new world for the artist.”? she described her experience of war as a writer. “Of course, some exaggerated subtle problems and ignored more important issues.”? she complained. “Mr. Bigdeli has a lot to say and has been a very influential writer. But he has left a lot unsaid, so I think it's too early for him to go to pure literature. I find a very bright writer in him, going through his works. However, these works have not been received the recognition they deserve in our culture. The revolution has definitely come to patch two detached generations.”?
