As Khosravi's most substantial work, Rood-e Râvi contains all of the author's characteristic skills of writing. Khosravi's conscious use of words to achieve a post-modernistic effect has given the novel a subtle narrative form. This article is intended to explore the basic elements of the novel by taking advantage of the post-structural approach of Roland Barthes. Rood-e Râvi, in its deep structure abolishes or violates time by such techniques as the conversion, denial-and-restoration, and reincarnation-and-reiteration of the characters. Meanwhile the form of the novel is in concert with these techniques since the author loses no chance to express the basic idea of opposing time, and the order of the episodes indicates a kind of anachronism which manifests the lack of harmony between the narrative time and the dramatic time.
