American Materalism in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Azar Nafisi's Reading Lolita in Te

Summary: The Iranian Revolution was a dream of the Iranian people to break the growing class barrier between the rich and poor and to replace a decadent pro-western culture with a purer Islamic state that dedicates "man to a holy life." When the revolution began, the dream of a much freer and better Iran began, but this dream was an obsession by the majority of the people that would not be actualized.
