Florescence of Revolution in Shafaq’s Poetry

Full Text PDF


Blossoms of Persian poetry, although inspired by the pure nature, gradually took the attractive qualities of mysticism. In traditions, the Holy Quran is called the burgeoning of hearts and the greatest prophet (peace be upon him) is referred to as the burgeoning of souls. Spring in Persian literature is sometimes the symbol of improvement and deliverance and at other times is considered as the symbol of the afterlife. Actually, this is the highest symbol of spring in Persian literature.Desert land of Yazd bears fragrant flowers, in spite of its natural wrath, tickles the taste of souls of the pious people. One of these scented flowers is the deceased Behjati whose pen name is “Shafaq” and spring in his poetry possessed the qualities of revolution. Current study is going to address this concept in his poetry. The article was conducted with an analytical-descriptive method using bibliographic resources.
