Amir Zadnemat, Sahar Musavi Tabatabaei
Pages: 17-24


The current article deals with the technique of rewriting as one of the most important pillars of story writing. Rewriting refers to scrunity and meticulous analysis of the text which is grounded in two foundations: on the one hand, all points regarding the appearance of the work (punctuation problems, phrasing, etc.) and on the other hand, those cases which are related to the content of the work (including the main elements of the story, course of events, strength and consistency of themes, its order, etc.) which constitute the content and materials of the story, are closely inspected. Rewriting is not just retelling the story, rather by it the underneath layers of the work are critically analyzed. Rewriting is used where the events have not been inscribed and is of paramount importance in this regard. It is needless to say that by observation of vital points in rewriting, the author will be easily able to turn the work at issue into a readable work. As a result, a precise understanding of the work is basically related to the observation of the aforementioned points in the rewriting. By taking advantage of the technique of rewriting, one can provide a clearer of what has existed.
