Masumeh Pouya, Farhad Divsalar


The literature of each country is rooted in thoughts and ideas of its intellectuals and poets. Throughout history in Iran, we can see the appearance and development of outstanding poets who have examined their senses and talents in many different styles and have been successful. The intellectual and religious movements have always been influential in appearance of different literary styles or literary themes and their strengths or weaknesses. The appearance of new Arabic combination of words and phrases in romantic and lyric Persian poetry has been influential in creation of new concepts and has led to new style in Persian literature. With appearance of the greatest Persian poet and prose writer, Sa’adi Shirazi in seventh century, the Iraqi style which is characterized with applications of the words are less original Persian and Arabic words instead of them are replaced, reached the peaks and climax of sonnet style. This analytical-descriptive present paper examines the reflection and interactions of Persian and Arabic literature in sonnet of Sa’adi of Shiraz with Iraqi style.
