Study of the Effect of Attar’s Mantic Uttair on Legend of Centuries
Masoumeh Zandi *
Abstract:   (2384 Views)

   Victor Hugo, famous French poet and author in 19th century, has been inspired by mystical literature of Iran, particularly Attar, in creating Legend of Centuries, his epical work. In this analytic- descriptive paper, efforts have been made to clarify the similarities and common points between Attar’s Mantic Uttair and Hugo’s Legend of Centuries, based on themes of mysticism. In Mantic Uttair, the eager birds under leadership of hoopoe fly toward Ghaf mountain for seeking Simorgh. In their way, they encounter a lot of  dangers, and at last, thirty of them attain their goal. In Legend of Centuries, Hugo himself, has covered such way. Both, great Iranian mystic and French poet, in their religious and mystical epics, talk about the experience of the visit of human soul with peaceful and divine soul, which is one of the divine manifestations of human being. In Hugo’s work, each bird is the symbol of a particular idea and thought. In Mantic Uttair also, every bird is a symbol of a special group and class.

Keywords: Mysticism, Attar, Mantic Uttair, Hugo, Legend of Centuries.
