Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Genette introduced the term transtextuality in order to examine the types of interdisciplinary relationships between texts. Since the mystical genre occupies a significant part of Persian literature, the transliteration of prominent mystical texts reveals the hidden and unopened angles between them. The present paper, which has been conducted by using a descriptive-analytical method, was the first step in examining the transtextual relations of  46 common anecdotes of the Third Revelation of Kashf al-Asrarand Rawh ol-Arwah from the perspective of the theory of Genette’s transtextuality. The research findings, in general, showed that, first, among the 46 anecdotes in these two books, 10 anecdotes can be divided into explicit intertextuality, 19 anecdotes into the form of non-explicit intertextuality, and 17 anecdotes in terms of implicit intertextuality. Second, the result of the quest for paratexts also indicated that there were many similarities in terms of form and meaning in the titles and the beginning and epilogue of these anecdotes. This made the authors of the present study increasingly believe in the correctness of the assumption of the adaptation of the texts from Samanids. Third, from the perspective of the architextuality relationship, the division of these two mystical books under the mystical genre was confirmed. Forth, from the metatextuality point of view, the authors of the present study did not see any direct review and interpretation of the text of the Rawh ol-Arwah in any part of the anecdotes of the Third Revelation of Kashf ol-Asrar.
