عنوان مقاله [English]
Ziya’ Ghâsemi claims in his book, Sabk-e Adabi Az Didghâh-e Zabânŝenâsi, that he has presented an analytic pattern based on linguistics, especially generative grammar, to analyze literary text’s style. This essay evaluates the book and its writer’s claims through criticizing the book’s form and content. Based on this book, this article attempts to show not only this book does not present a new point of view and method, but also it merely addresses some abstract examples like previous stylistics handbooks in Farsi. The book cannot be counted as a progress in literary and stylistic studies in any way because of its out of date references, ignoring new approaches in stylistics, repetition of other handbook’s defects, shallow knowledge about Persian literature, and misunderstandings of some literary terms.
