His approach is an integration of history and sociology of literature. In this way, the main characteristic feature of this work includes a series of compact critical descriptions according to historical classification of various works, which represent the features and tendencies of each relevant examined era. In the first volume, the book provides reviews on and insights into story literature from the first freedom seeking movement which include the works belonging to the onset of the Constitutional Revolution era up until the year 1961. Moreover, the emergence of new literary styles, the regular and translation, the role of political and social factors, the hierarchy of literary styles and the status of literature in this era are all addressed. The topics discussed in the second volume are related to the works published in the period between 1961 until the fall of Pahlavi dynasty. Mirabedini moves on with the third volume to address works released between 1979 and 1991 and offers reviews on them.
