عنوان مقاله [English]
The love of nature and its beauty has been the source of the creation of many artistic works. Meanwhile, poetry has been no exception, and nature's expression is observed in the works of the poets, especially contemporary poets, each of whom has spoken from a unique perspective and is disparately concerned about nature. Among the contemporary poets, Nima Youshij and Sohrab Sepehri, as modernist poets, have special credit and positions.
Regarding the significance of nature in Iranian art, this paper analyzes and explains the views of Nima and Sohrab on the subject of nature and seeks to identify the similarities and differences in the types of attitudes of these two poets toward nature. On this basis, it analyzes the qualitative content of the poems by Sohrab and Nima with an interpretive method. The findings show that the poems of Sohrab and Nima share common aspects in concepts like the novelty of looking at nature and its elements, transformation in nature, nature as a safe place, and seeing the natural elements as living and animate things. However, they are different in concepts such as the special theosophical view of nature, holism, and specificity, phenomenological look at nature, nature as a symbol, native and local nature, and social view of natural elements. It seems that the major difference between these two poets is in their holism and specificity.
