I Will Turn Off the Lights

The author of “I Will Turn Off the Lights” is Zoya Pirzad. Zoya Pirzad (born 1952 in Abadan) is an Iranian-Armenian writer and novelist. Her mother is Iranian Armenian and her father comes from a Russian background. She grew up in Tehran and is now married with two sons, Sasha and Shervin.Pirzad’s first novel, I Will Turn Off the Lights; (published in English as Things We Left Unsaid) has been published numerous times in Iran and has been translated to several languages. Stains in se ketab is written during the historical stage of Iran when due to common Islamic beliefs, many educated and intellectual Iranian women felt captured in their home and they were not allowed to participate in their society. This story can be analyzed based on Queer feminism theories which opposed to essentialism, the idea that a person’s true identity is composed of fixed and unchanging properties. Queer instead supports the idea that human identity is formed by the culture into which one is born. Recognizing that gender, what it means to be a man or a woman, is a constantly changing concept, they became social constructivists. She also uses the theories of Jung psychology which refers to some of our unconscious that is shared with all other members of the human species to express the influences of past generations, in which their thoughts and feelings toward women is still continuing in Iran’s society. In this story she talks about a modern Iranian woman’s desires, confusion, and the domestic life of the woman that is not fulfilling any more.
