Classical and Modern Kurdish fiction has its own elements each. This paper is an attempt to explain the important movement from classical narratives to modern story-writing in the light of recent narrative theories. The study provides an analytical classification of classical Kurdish tales in order to define their characteristic features and determine their differences from the narrative techniques applied in modern stories. By doing so, the important shift from classical to modern story-writing is explained. Identifying the cultural, linguistic, historical and narrative traces of Kurdish tales in modern Kurdish fiction, on the on hand, and identifying its modern elements, on the other hand, will help Kurdish authors to produce works which have a firm root in Kurdish history and culture and, at the same time, appeal to modern audiences.
