Attar, the Sufi and eminent poet of the twelfth, century, is the owner of several precious long narrative poems (masnavi) . He has not written his poems for nobles or ornamented them with art of speech, but his mysterious stories present him as a symbolist poet. The  Sufi poet has based his stories on some secrets and applied the characters as symbols whose motions and postures denote mysterious concepts of his fables.This paper appraises the cryptic and theosophical aspects of The Seven Valleys (Haft-Wadi) and The City of Love (Shahr-e-Eshgh) in Attar’s Mantegh-ot-tayr and also studies the symbolic concept of Elahi-Nama, his other long narrative poems, and the symbols applied in the poems. These symbols embrace both social and theosophical aspects in which the theosophical part is more distinguished.
