عنوان مقاله [English]
Jalal Al-Ahmad is a well-known and influential writer in contemporary Iranian literature, especially short stories, and has demonstrated his expertise in travel and monographs as well as in research and translation. In his stories, especially The School Principal, he has tried to present the realities of social life with a critical view, not sacrificing reality and expression in artistic imagery. The main question of the present study is whether Jalal Al-Ahmad has paid attention to the victimization and its causes in the story of the school principal with regard to his special view on the educational system and childhood. Looking at the story of the school principal from the perspective of content analysis, the social, cultural and economic situation of most families has been poor and this has led families to focus less on children. Al-Ahmed considers the impact of this issue on child abuse to be significant. He refers to physical victimization as the most common form of victimization in this story, but nevertheless provides more detailed explanations of sexual victimization. His causal perspective has enabled us to examine the story of the school principal in Theoretical Victim Theory.
