This article focuses on mortalism and culturalogy in Sādegh Hedāyat’s fictions. The very depicting of the different ways of burial and the cemetric rites in his works - which are accomplished by benefiting from the knowledge of archeology, anthropology, and the different beliefs and cults - indicate that Hedāyat has hesitated on these beliefs. In Adam’s Ancestors, Hedāyat narrates the death of a human-monkey, and in Darkroom, Abunasr’s Throne, Afarinegan, and The Last Smile, he gives a narration of man’s death, respectively in Stone age, Iron age, and the later ages such as those of Kiāni Kings and contemporary period. This trend goes on even up to thousand years after our time which might imply a chronological order in Hedāyat’s fictions.
