Plot in Kurdish Stories
The early investigation of Plot as an essential element of story is traced back to Aristotle’s ‘The Art of Poetry’. Aristotle’s view of plot remained idealistic until the Russian formalist’s’ defined plot in more subtle way and introduced it as a very important structural element of story which gave plot more literary insight since then. In this research (Plot in Kurdish Stories ١٩٩٥-٢٠٠٥) we tried to explore the nature of plot in the Kurdish stories through some examples that fall in the mentioned period.
The research is mainly made of an introduction, three parts, and the conclusion. Also, the references have been posted at the end of the research as well as an English abstract. In the introduction, we focused on the reasons behind choosing this topic and the problems the research tries to answer. Later, the main three parts are as follow:
The first part (an introduction to plot), plot has been discussed from theoretical view and as a term. For further explanation, we have discussed plot from three different perspectives according to the common approaches (Traditional, Modern and Moderate) with details of each approach and its specification from the other. This part also includes a brief discussion about story structure and its main structural elements of each story in examination.
The second part of the research (types of plot in Kurdish story) the practical part of the research about different types of plot, among which we have selected the type of plot that signifies Kurdish stories. The research shows that time plot is most commonly used in Kurdish stories with its four types (Historical Time-Plot, Psychological Time-Plot, Flashback time, Forward time).
The last part (the aesthetic of Kurdish story plot), bring to view how aesthetic the Kurdish stories are in designated period for the study. Attempting to explain the aesthetic sides of Kurdish new stories which mainly mirror itself in personifying the inanimate. Eventually the research conclusions were presented in few bullet lines.
