Abstract: 

Sisyphe Myth is a book about vanity, or absurdity, of contemporary human being by Camus. This book, along with its myth, was one of the influential works on contemporary poets; its impact was so strong that poets such as Rahimi, Shamloo, Shafiee-e Kadkani, etc. were inspired by it. But this inspiration was different because each poet’s interpretation of this myth was fundamentally different. Generally, we may categorize Iranian poets’ attitudes towards this myth into four types: (a) poets who literally re-narrated the myth, e.g. Rahimi in “Taghdir” (b) poets who used its philosophical content and theme to create similar symbols, e.g. Shamloo in “Rood” (c) poets who discarded its philosophical content and attached a social dimension to it, e.g. Shafiee-e Kadkani in “Charkh-e Chah” and (d) poets who simply reflected its content in their poems, e.g. Shamloo in “jahan ra ke afraid?”
