In the mythology of nations, there has been a myth known as “the numen of poetry and art” and different cultures have samples for that. This numen has been the connecting point between human being and God (or divinities) that inspires poetry to the poet in an unconscious manner. The writer of this article has studied Shahnameh and Pahlavi literature to search for this myth in the culture of ancient Iran. The findings of the paper shows that the inspiration function comes from Soroush and Nariosang and Soroush is only given the function of poetic inspiration in Ancient Iran.
