From Persian Tadhkirah To Magical Realism: A Discourse in The Review of Mystical Realism
Mehrnaz Shirazi Adel /Ph.D. student of Persian Literature at the Institute of Humanities and Cultural Studies/ mshiraziadl@gmail.com
Mystical Realism; A Comparison of Suffi Tadhkirah writing and Magical Realism with Emphasis on Marquez's Works by Mohammad Roodgar is in effect his doctoral thesis in the field of Islamic Mysticism and Sufism, approved in 1394 (Persian Calendar) and published for the first time as a book, in 1396. In this work, he mentions the similarities and differences between magical realism as a mode of writing (based on Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude) and the Sufi anecdotes contained in different Sufi Tadhkirah writings (emphasizing on Attar's Tazkirat al-Awliya) to introduce a novel way in Persian story writing; a way which is, in his opinion, native and driven from the experience and particular viewpoints of Muslim mystics. Despite the differences in subject matter and other epistemological and ontological differences between the views of these authors, he considers a strong structural similarity between magic realism and the methodology of Sufism in Tadhkirah writing. A similarity that compels him to attempt at comparing the two in order to find a localized and native mode of narratives in Persian stories. He also tried to implement his findings in his own writings in the form of a novel (Seventh Wishing Rag, 1395).
