The modern literary movement in Iranian fiction writing is the most important movement in Iranian literature and the best author in this movement could be noted as Bijan Najdi. He was an anarchist and Empiricist author. Najdi’s stories are full of metaphors and similes, a trait which makes the language of his stories closer to the language of poetry and givessuch a stylistic distinction to his works that he is considered in Persian literature as the founder of poetic fiction. The most important factors that mark Najdi’s stories as modern stories are elements such as poetic language, use of time gaps and penetration of  the mind of his characters. In this paper surveying the narrative elements of "An Indian in Astara", we demonstrate that the story is a modern story and that Najdi employs modern narrativeelements, such as confrontation of life and death, imagination and reality, and acceptance of the situation and idealism, in order to express his ideas and the intellectual foundations of his thoughts.
Keywords: Narrative, Language, Modern Fiction, Bijan Najdi, “An Indian in Astara”
