This dissertation examines representations of identity in the fiction works of Iranian author Hushang Golshiri. An extensive, theoretically grounded examination of Golshiri’s attention to five different aspects of identity in his novel Ayenehha-ye Dardar is the focal point of the research presented herein. This examination is supported by an exploration of these same aspects of identity in his other long works of fiction and in numerous short stories from several collections he produced. A brief biography of Golshiri’s life which is focused on his literary activities at different points in his life is included. An annotated bibliography of Golshiri’s major publications is also provided, as is a plot summary of Ayenehha-ye Dardar.
