عنوان مقاله [English]
Discovering how much the great poets, like Hafiz, have used imagination and lingual skills to convey poetic concepts is one of the ways by which one can achieve the nature of literature and to speak effectively. Consisting of two parts of superstructure and infrastructure, the present essay is to analyze the stylistic (lexical, syntactic, and rhetorical) layers of one of Hafez's sonnets. The first part, in the field of structure and form, contains the analysis of lexical and syntactic layer and the second part, relating to the theme and imagination, contains the analysis of rhetorical layer and dramatic images of Hafez's poetry. In the second part, some examples are mentioned from other sonnets of Hafez. Adopting a new attitude, it has been tried in present essay to prove the continuity of Hafez's mind and language to eternal themes (the themes deal with the origin of man and his life before his Descent on Earth); a logic that affects his vocabulary, lingual combinations and poetic imagination simultaneously and forms his thinking system. A system still calls researchers to decrypt the mystery of word and meaning in his poetry after several centuries.
