عنوان مقاله [English]
In his mathnawīs, Bīdil has adequately addressed human as a pivotal code. Human, his beginning and fate, his dimensions and existential potentials are among the most important concerns of the poet. For him, all signs of universe are the result of human cognition. In his stories – which has one single central character – Bīdil narrates the journey of human in his own quest, and the character finally realizes nothing is out of the scope of his “cognition” and “existence”, making him the sole truth of the universe. The study tries to show what sort of relationship Bīdil establishes with his hypothetical reader, as a “typical human”, and how he achieves this by drawing on the potentials and power in his narratives. This is carried out by examining the various aspects of narrativity in Bīdil’s longest stories. Alongside the relationship between “story” and “discourse”, the relationship between narrator, the story’s single pivotal character and implied reader are also investigated to depict a graph which represents the direction of Bīdil’s narrative in various layers of story.
