One of the objectives of structuralist criticism - based on linguistics - is to analyze the formation of texts from literature. In this descriptive and analytical study, The authors took advantage of a semasiological approach to the study of the text in order to enrich The analysis of textual structures. By the semasiological approach It means the study of meanings which consists in starting from words, from forms to go towards the determination of meaning.
The purpose of this research is to present a structural analysis of a corpus of contemporary Persian literature. The problematic of this research consists of knowing how meaning takes its configuration by means of the text structures of the story "Some credible stories about love" by Mostafa Mastour. Mastour was born in 1964 in Ahvaz. He wrote his first stories before his thirtieth birthday. He has a particular penchant for physics and geometry in his writings. The corpus in the present research is the first story in a Short story collection composed of seven short stories entitled "Some credible stories", published in 2003.
The methodological novelty of this study comes from the fact that in the analysis a semasiological approach was taken into account with regard to confrontation of the famous dichotomy: meaning/form.
The main hypothesis of this research consists of believing that the structural system of text analysis follows a logic and a movement that goes from microstructures to macrostructures, from particles of forms to the semantic whole.
 The result of this article demonstrated how meaning takes shape in text, from a semasiological point of view, where the analysis of structures and forms (lexicon, phonetics, grammar and narration) of the corpus gives us access to the main theme and the overall meaning of the story, namely love.
