Abstract: 
An outstanding feature of Persian literature is that it is full of mystical themes which are tied inseparably to Farsi prose and poetry. A majority of our poetry is composed of poems that include mystical concepts. An event that affected our contemporary poetry was the Iran-Iraq war of 1980s.
Responsible Iranian poets did their best to depict heroic epics of this period. As a result, a new form known as 'Holy Defense Poetry' came into being. An important theme of this type of poetry is mysticism. By studying and analyzing the poems of 'Holy Defense', the authors try to prove that the poets use different mystical themes in their works.
