Samad Behrangi is one of the first Iranian authors who wrote stories for children ̦ and his The Little Black Fish is one of the great masterpieces of children and young adult literature. In this story ̦ the little fish is bored by both a barren life in a restricted area ̦ and ̦ narrow mindedness and vanity of its fellow creatures ̦ so it decides to go toward the unbounded environment and gain knowledge and new experiences. Therefore ̦ it ignores all the existing traditions and taboos and enters upon a risky road. Behrangi's The Little Black Fish and Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull have some similarities in content ̦ meaning and structure (layout ̦ point of view ̦ narratology and symbolism) In this study these two stories are comparatively discussed through a descriptive analysis ̦ and by finding the similar and different points of the mentioned stories ̦ aims to show the mental ̦ cultural and artistic common points of two authors from two different languages.
Keywords: Comparative Literature ̦ Jonathan Livingston Seagull ̦ Richard Bach ̦ Samad Behrangi ̦ The Little Black Fish.
