Narratology in Iran has an old background. It was mostly done at a mere descriptive level by narrators. This article presents a type of anthropologically- based interpretation which aims at explaining things by referring to specific social elements at specific times and by using narratological method. This approach can help us study Turkmen tales from a sociocultural standpoint in order to determine the dominant discourse by delineating their relation with the public domain and their manner of development.
The dominant discourse in Turkmen tales brings out the history and identity which conform with the society in the process of time. The present research has benefited from tools like interview and narratology to achieve its goals.
