Review about compose couplet in the Baba taher style

Abdolrasoul Forotan(Author in Charge), Abdolreza Seif

The most famous couplets of Persian literature are related to Baba taher. In these songs, which are written very simple in Lori accent, a pure mysticism and poem’s lovesickness can be seen. A few centuries after Baba taher, poets such as Pur-e Fereydun, Sufi-e Mazandarani and etc. have also composed folk, romance and tragic couplets which some of them came to the Baba taher’s book of poems because of their similarity to his poems. The poets of these couplets have not tried to imitate the poetry of Baba taher, But in the period of literary return, which the poets compose poem in the style of old ones, especially the great poets of Khorasani and Iraqi styles, Few of the poets, such as Izadi-e Kazeruni and Qafel-e Firuzabadi, were interested in Baba Taher’s poetry style and they composed couplets in Lori accent and Baba Taher’s poetry style; While of them were from Fars region and did not speak to Lori accent; Even Izadi’s parentage came to Najd Arabs with several mediators. In the Divan of these two poets or in the biography books it is clearly mentioned that these couplets are "in Baba Taher’s poetry style". Different factors make the similarities and differences of this couplets to the Baba taher’s couplets. In this article, we review them and their success rate in following the style of Baba Taher. During the Qajar period, there was also a famous poet of couplets named Fayez Dashti which, although in some cases, has been influenced by Baba Taher"s songs, but his poetry cannot be considered in Baba Taher’s poetry style.
