This book examines the concept of nature in the poetry of Nim Yushij (1895-1960), the founder of modern Persian poetry. The study discusses how nature is used both as an ideological device for new metrics, and as a source of inspiriation for nature poetry. Concepts of ideology, utopia, modernism, discourse, and nature help define Nim's poetry in a historical and analytical examination of this important poet's innovations in Persian literature.
