Abstract

One of the Iranian contemporary prominent poets is Sohrab Sepehri who his poetry is very famous in theosophy because of the addressing of inner subjectivity difficulties, naturalism, and finding linkage between human beings and nature and God. The aim of this study is to examine, in what manner and for what reason, national and religious myths were delivered into Sepehri’s poetry of “the traveler.” On one hand, it focuses Sepehri’s unconscious mind, and on the other hand, it highlights the link between specified myth and the theosophical origins of presented myths in his poetry. Also, this study clarifies the above-mentioned myths to which nations they have belonged, Iranian or adapted traditional forms of the other nations, in order to manifest their place and period in different cultures, particularly, to analyze the relation of myths to religion, history, and sociology. This article applies a qualitative method for its discussion. The resultant study reveals that the demonstrated construction and interpretation of these myths will emphasize the human beings’ life issues.
