Abstract:   (400 Views)
Care for nature has always been a part of the poetry of old and new poets. Nature is either the source of inspiration for the poet's poetry or sles, its beauty and thought-provoking aspects cause the poet's delight and ecstasy and the means of their poetic composition and description. In the views of the contemporary poet, Sohrab Sepehri, nature is not only beautiful, it also has a mystical quality, and the poet is guided through it to the truth of the existence of the Creator, as if it were a kind of religion based on direct observation of nature. Accordingly, the present article, while defining and explaining the concept of mysticism and its relationship with nature in the poems of this poet, through a close-reading, also analyzes poems by him as an example of his sepcial mystical stance. The result of this article is that Sohrab Sepehri's mysticism is different from traditional mysticism and is completely based on nature and its manifestations, and the poet, by watching nature and contemplating it, acquires traits from it that ultimately become parts and features of his mystical view. Among these attributes are innocence, simplicity, unassumingness, and liberation from the shackles of principles and rules.
