It gives a strong theoretical underpinning to the development of Middle Eastern literature in the modern period.

Literary Modernity Between the Middle East and Europe Reviews

'...his mastery of a difficult body of texts in both Persian and Arabic is particularly impressive because it is so willing to go back and forth between the two. Traditionally an Arabist may cite Persian, but at arm's length, and vice versa. Rastegar seems equally at home in both traditions, and it would be hard to overemphasize how rare this is. It puts him in his own category as a comparatist.' - Michael Beard, University of North Dakota, The Translator, Volume 15
