عنوان مقاله [English]
A considerable part of Persian classical literature is devoted to didactic literature. Mysticism has also been very important in Persian didactic literature and Sufi tales are clear example of that; since all these tales have been used for the purpose of teaching. Attar, one of the greatest Persian poets, has paid lots of attention to these tales and has benefited them a lot in his works. Attar’s knowledge about these tales is actually representing his mystic method. The writers of this article have studied the structural and narrative features of Sufi tales in Attar’s works and his ways of telling the stories.
