Abstract. The literary theory refers to reader-response theory or reader-oriented criticism to a set of critical theories and activities that were popular in North America in the late 1960s and 1970s. This critique was initially a response to critics of the new critique of literary texts, such as objective, that interpreted the text apart from the reader's experience and believed that the meaning of a text was only in the text itself, but in the new critique of the modified proposition, and the author is put aside. The critic and the reader will study the text in accordance with the patterns of the sign and contribute to the extraction of meaning. The initial form of this kind of critique emphasizes the reader, not the text. Zoya Pirzad, a contemporary writer and storyteller, was born in Abadan in, 1952; Before finding her interest in the field of fiction writing, she first translated some books, then wrote a collection of stories "Like All Ages," and two novels "I Turn Off the Lights" and "Let's Get It Used". for the present article, a
descriptive-analytical method that seeks to examine these effects from the perspective of criticism of the reader-response theory was used, and some of its findings can be cited as: Zoya Pirzad's stories and novels often have themes and subjects in femininity, and in the critique of the interactive reader-response theory, it seems that women can better communicate with the text as the reader. The spoken language of works is often conversational and colloquial; This feature is an ideal tool for more readers to interact with text. Zoya Pirzad is a realistic writer who tries to express the social, cultural, economic and emotional issues of society - especially the women's society - in a realistic way.
