The present study aims at investigating narratology of the short story "Elegy for Jaleh and her murderer" by Abou Torab Khosravi based on Greimas' Actantial and Sensible /Stative Models. It also seeks to investigate narrative structures considered by Greimas in order to explain the gradual evolution of sequences and formation of the story to compare the Sensible /Stative models, and to examine the way of passing through the actantial system into the Sensible /Stative model in this story. The actantial model turns around Lieutenant Kavous actions where in a pre-programmed and prescriptive manner, he wants to affect the object of value with a special order in contractual / executive and disjunctive sequences. Action helpers and anti-actants in turn, facilitate or make difficult the hero's action. However, in the Sensible /Stative Model, we can find how actants and object of value turn into object of value and sensible or stative subject in the cycle of discourse. As well, it is easy to observe that sensible or stative subject without any pre-planned program, finds himself in a new situation by dealing with the object of value after passing through emotional-perceptual processes and other aspects of discourse that can be called "moving toward the beloved". Thus, it can be concluded that in this discursive transmutation, the relationship between actants can be redefined with a gradual transformation in five sequences, and the established actantial discourse reaches doubt and changes into sensible /stative discourse.
