Abstract: 
Myths are communal dreams of human beings and mythological symbols are the artistic and secret language of the myths. They increase the depth of meanings when they are used in poems. Symbols have a flexible nature which enables them to reflect deeply-rooted concepts and subjects in a comprehensive way. They are able to produce different meanings and uses out of a single form and to continue their novelty and continuity with a consistent growth. Of course symbolist poets and artists, because of their cultural background and their individual and social real needs, may be especially keen to use symbols; but the author of this article, while considering the theoretical basis of the usage of symbols and related subjects, attempts to survey the most important factors that lead poets to use plants symbols and myths. The author also tries to have a look at the uses of these kinds of symbols in the myths of different tribes and nations so that he can compare them in a better way.
