Allegory in Masnavi Haft Orang
Ali Akbar Afrasiabpour *
Abstract:   (1125 Views)

Allegory proves to be very efficient in stating mystical and indirect concepts. Human and animal allegory is common in mystical and didactic literatures. In Masnavi Haft Organ, Jami cites over ten stories of animals. He also uses symbolic animal allegories as well. He personifies animals to teach moral a mythical concepts. He also did not neglect the legendary and totem backgrounds of the allegories he used. In personification of animals and birds, he also used the past experiences. This paper deals with most of the allegories in Haft Orang.

Keywords: allegory, symbol, totem, legend, personification, myth, mythological consciousness.
