Abstract:   (1019 Views)
One of the stylistic features of the elegies of the first period of the Holy Defense (1980-1984) is the imagination of nature, which goes beyond traditional rhetoric due to the subject of mourning of the martyr, and is connected with the literary schools of the world. By collecting all the elegies of the first years of the war that have been published in the collection of poets’ poems and studying the function of nature in images, a combined nature was revealed that can be called a romantic-classical duality. Among the romantic functions of nature in elegies are “nature as a mourner”, “nature as a creditor to the martyr”, “nature as a credited by the martyr” and “nature as a part of setting”. Among the classicism components, “imitation of nature”, “imitation of the ancients”, “instructiveness and pleasantness”, “clarity”, and “decorum” are noteworthy. This duality is the result of linking the traditionalist and truth-seeking approach with the emotional approach that the poets of the Holy Defense have faced in mourning the martyrs of the war, and have chosen it to express and effectively convey their mourning states to the reader.
