This article aims to study the reflection of social-communicational structures in Persian novels produced in the two decades of 1350s and 1370s Hijri. For this purpose, fourteen outstanding novels including seven written in 1350s and seven written in 1370s were selected to study in terms of their social-communication, individualism or pluralism content status in the two decades. The results from the research showed that in the works produced in 1350s power hierarchy is seen and patriarchal discourse is dominated and power relations in social relations can be seen in these works, but in the texts produced in 1370s power relations are inferred from the human individual relations and the average and middle class appear in the urban atmosphere.
