Today, literary works are criticized and analyzed from the perspective of various theories. One of these theories is Bakhtin’s dialogic which is a criterion for measuring the level of democracy in the text. Dialogic seeks the relations between different voices that come from a single work. A story can be mono-voice or include different voices. Even in some stories there may be different voices all of which eventually lead to the same ideology. But from Bakhtin’s point of view, in a polyphonic work each voice represents its own ideology, and these voices are heard distinctively throughout the story, and no other voice, especially the author’s (narrator’s), overtakes them. The present study analyzes two novels by the contemporary author Siamak Golshiri. The analysis of The Cursed and The Bitter Party shows that these novels are polyphonic works and include dialogic elements such as carnival, chronotope, characterization, and dialogism.
