Critical discourse analysis as an interdisciplinarysocial science approach takes languagebeyond its linguistic forms and studies literary authors’ideological background as affected by their dominant cultural and social conditions. Since the power ruling a society directs its discourse; this approach illustrates how association of literary works with the dominant power in a society can be represented in three layers, including description, interpretation, and explanation. Without any doubts, Nahjolbalgheh orations contain diverse topics by which Imam Ali (AS), quite eloquently andexpressively, guided the community to prosperityand felicity while considering the dominant political and cultural milieu of that age.This research is descriptive-analytic in nature and is formed on the basis of Norman Fairclough’s model of Critical Discourse Analysis to study the linguistic interaction of Imam Ali’s orations within the suffocating conditions provoked by Kufipeople actions. This paper is the explanation of the psychological discourse and aesthetics of these orations. It also confirms the influence of the dominant political situation onKufis’particular behaviors and Imam Ali’s mutual influence on them.
