Investigating the Manifestations of Nostalgia in the Poems of Amiri Firuzkuhi

Batul Mahdavi, Hedye Kasiri


A wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one's life is called nostalgia. It has been one of the issues raised in psychology and later was considered in literature. It turned to the source and theme of many literary works. Amiri Firuzkoohi is one of the poets who used nostalgia in his poems. This paper aims at studying the examples of nostalgia in Amiri's poems. The results show that the examples reflect a wistful desire to return to happy days of youth and childhood.
