manipulative strategies used in the anglo-american novels translated in-to persian under two administrations in power after the islamic revolution in iran


mazdak bolouri


the present study addresses the influence of iran’s post-revolution political structure on the formation of the country’s translated literature system. it examines the translated anglo-american novels pub-lished under two administrations in power after the islamic revolution: 1) the reformist administra-tion, which was a more liberal, leftist administration, seeking to improve iran’s relations with the west and promising to give people more social freedoms and to open the political atmosphere of the country, 2) the fundamentalist administration, a conservative administration with hostile, aggressive policies towards the west, which maximized iran and west’s confrontations in the international arena. the ma-nipulations found in the novels published under each administration were compared to see what manip-ulative strategies were most frequent in each period. the results show that the administration with clos-er relations with the west is more open to western literature, and only renders its culture in a softer, more decent language and keeps the original image of the cultural other. that is, the administration’s main manipulative strategy is, to use dukāte’s terminology, the ‘attenuation’ of the taboo concepts. while the administration with hostile policies towards the west is less tolerant of its culture and fre-quently eliminates the manifestations of the western culture, that is to say, its main manipulative strat-egy is ‘deletion’. consequently, it projects a very different image of the cultural other.
