Abstract:   (1050 Views)
In this article, "contemporary" has been studied as a "concept" by the first historians of Persian literature, i.e. biographers. I have tried to describe this concept in exactly the same way that the Persian biographers has experienced and known it. First, there is an introductory discussion of the lexical roots of "contemporary" and then its current meanings and interpretations of contemporary. These studies show the extent to which perceptions of the contemporary depend on cultural and social conditions. After that, the meanings of "contemporary" are discussed by biographers. The meanings are contemporaneity, novelty and being in the same level. It has been shown that for biographers, these perceptions are fluid and the reasons for their fluidity have been investigated. The fluidity of these perceptions has led biographers to use restrictive criteria. This has been used so that they can do their job in writing about their contemporaries with more precise limits, and reduce the fluidity of the contemporary concept.
