عنوان مقاله [English]
The question this article is to answer is on the basis of what criteria a narrative text could be classified as lyric literature. Trying to give an answer to this question, the author has used a descriptive-analytic methodology to indicate which properties, in prominent love story, lessen the importance of narrative factors versus lyric ones. Such factors as description of emotional tensions, poetic and lyric facets, using lyric language, and the presence of the narrator’s ego in the text are among the main components the extension of which in the text decreases the prominence of narrative and leads to the significance of lyric. Accordingly, in lyric love stories, a reader may encounter some scenes the source of which are mainly the emotions and feelings of the story character or narrator. In such texts, the poetic and emotional function is more dominant than the referential one.
