Abstract: 
Symbol is one of literary techniques which has been given attention by many poets. In its general meaning, symbol is the representation and explanation of something. The important characteristic of symbols is its ambiguity, unclearness, undetailedness and indirectness; it means that in symbolic language, desire and intention, is not the appearance and a figure of speech, but it is a concept, beyond the surface and deeper. Sohrab Sepehri, one of the contemporary poets, has used symbol in his poems and one of the mysteries of his poems is ambiguity and complexity. In this article the effort was to study and describe symbols in Sohrab’s poetry as much as possible, to see his worldview and his ideas from this point of view. Symbols of Sohrab’s poetry are originated in his Gnostic, philosophical and social beliefs and ideas. He has been affected by different cultures of Islamic Iran, ancient India and China and Christianity. However, his poetry announces an internal enthusiasm and personal behavior. Sohrab is a Gnostic poet and his symbols are different from socio-political symbols of his other contemporary poets.
