Majalis al-Nafais is a biography in Turkish that was translated into Persian five times after its publication. Most subsequen bioghrafies are influenced by its style. As far as possible, the tradition of writing biography in Iran can be divided into two periods before and after Majalis al-Nafais. The main question of the article is formed at this point: What is the distinguishing feature of this biography? The answer must be found in the structural features of the work. To find the answer, after a brief review of the author's personality dimensions, we analyze the effect structurally and then explore the discourse order of the world outside and inside the text To show what is the discourse basis of this different structure. Examining the methods and techniques of classifying poets, the method of introducing figures and the problem of criticizing poetry and poets are the other three central issues with the help of which we explain the methodological pillars of Majlis al-Nafais. The structure of this biography has a direct or indirect effect on the Persian biography tradition of the tenth to fourteenth centuries in different ways.
