Foregrounding Foucault's Ideas of Power in Shelly’s Mont Blanc and Malekolshoare Bahar’s Damavandieh

Noorbakhsh Hooti, Maryam Navidi


There is a dominating power in every society, a power which imposes its own ideology on the society, which Foucault calls “discourse”. This is what people have to follow in order to gain their identity, otherwise they will not proceed. As a result, people need to stay in line with the dominating power, so that they would achieve their personal goals and become a part of the pyramid of power. This power is only subdued by a higher power, which causes a change in the dominating ideology, termed “Archive” by Foucault. This study through a close analysis and comparison makes an attempt to apply Foucault’s ideas of power to the poem Mont Blanc by Shelley, and the Persian poem Damavandieh by Bahar.
