In the process of analyzing German and Persian literature one can see the
style of "Story Novel" which is an Eastern style and has reached European literature through Iran although in the two countries they have been used for different aims and purposes. This style created a new genre in literature in
Europe and was immediately distinguished as one of the characteristics of the novel. According to some scholars, the" Eagle Theory" was necessary for a novel, which others such as Storm and Theodor did not believe in. Goethe asserted that a novel should consist of an event which had not been heard before (Honvise, 1971, P.5) In Persian literature, story in story style was employed in novels as a psychotherapy, where as, Europeans used it for a
different popose. This difference is also noticable in different eras of European literature.
