Following the advent of printing industry in Iran and the publishing of the first Iranian newspapers by the Gajar Court, its growth and revival, a new literary genre, journalistic genre, found its way into the Persian prose. Since at that time, this journalistic language was quiet new in the country, articles of newspapers were written in the same eloquent style as was used for writing Court correspondences. This difficult language was neither well understood nor liked by the public, since it did not reflect their pains, complaints and their wishes. Thus, it was not well received by the people and with the victory of Constitutional Revolution and the freedom of journalism from the absolute monopoly of Court, this sublime style began to decline.
This article by painting a picture of the journalistic atmosphere of Gajar Court, discusses its prose features, and deals with the reasons for its decline.
