عنوان مقاله [English]
The study of lyric novel as a subdivision of lyric literature is considered as a new field of study in story criticism that its history goes back to recent decades when it was Eileen Baldeshweiler, who used the topic of lyric story in her essay (1969) for the first time and for some stories that contain the especial elements of lyric novel. After that, some other eminent scholars such as Ralph freeman and Jonathan culler have expanded the horizons of this study and thus today there are some more exact and scientific criteria for the ones who are interested in studying the domain of lyric novel. Baldeshweiler,s theory actually is specific to lyric short story but the principles and elements that she offered and depicted, can be used to novels too. Her theory includes some original main components such as poetic tone of the story, using repetitive symbols in story and emotional flux however she has taken some elements from the previous scholars, views and developed them into a component of lyric story. The component of objective correlative can be mentioned for an example. The given component has been originally raised by T.S Eliot for the first time in 1946.
Based on what was said, the present essay is going to study the novel of solook by Mahmoud dowlat Abadi on based on Baldeshweiler,s theory of lyric story. In the present study, this question was answered: what elements and factors have characterized the solook novel as a modern lyric story?
The results show that solook can be considered as one of the best examples of lyric novel in Persian literature because the most important features of lyric story raised in Baldeshweiler,s such as poetic tone, symbolism and emotional flux are found in it with high frequency and considerable quality.
