Abstract

Despite the voluminous amount of research on the Blind Owl, little is still carried out on the representation of the natives in this work. This paper explores the text to reveal how the author, by giving credit to himself as an ‗I‘, artist and a painter, tries to establish a division between himself and the rest of the society, the world of Rajalehah, the Rabbles. Through the employment of the new genre of writing, the novel, Hedayat not only revolts against all the forms of traditional writings but also all the traditional customs and at large makes use of it as a means of scattering his ideological concepts through the mouth of the narrator. This discussion seeks to unveil the mask of orientalised system of representation of the natives, as the peripheral, and finally the ‗Other‘.
