The present study is an attempt to find symbolism in Divan-e Astarabadi and Saghinameh-e Torshizi. Symbolism is in fact the expression of different notions and concepts that we are not aware of. Since symbolism expresses human’s specific mental states, we could realize the poet’s mental state and ideologies through analyzing and interpreting it. There has not been sufficient research on Saghinameh-e Zohoori Torshizi and Divan-e Nizam oddin Astarabadi so far; thus many of their valuable concepts are not revealed. Therefore, this research can contribute to interpretations of the verses via symbolism analysis in these two poems. In this study, we have investigated symbolism in Divan-e Astarabadi and Saghinameh Zohoori Torshizi with a comparative approach and intend to reply to several inquiries. After derivation of the symbols in both of these Divans, The results show that Nizamoddin Astarabadi has had a precise and sophisticated knowledge on symbolism and has exploited archaic-patterned ideologies via imagination in his Divane in a specific way. However, Torshizi has not benefitted from archaic settings in his work. This study has been done with a theoretical approach and library research and it is a kind of content analysis investigation.
