Abstract: 

The image of gazelle as a semantic field is vastly used in the sonnets of Molavi. This iamge is not the very image of gazelle in literary tradition which is accompanied by several words such as "nafeh", "moshk" and "tatar" but there are deep semantic layers and new mystical domains behind such a metaphor. Using the cognitive theory of metaphor and based on the views of Lakoff and Johnson, as two theorists of cognitive semantics, the metaphorical functions of gazelle and image clusters related to it, i.e. desert, lion, hunting, Ibrahim Adham and the like in the sonnets of Molavi are explicated in this article. The image of gazelle gained an unprecedented status and value in the poems of Molavi. In his sonnets, the gazelle achieves a semantic transcendence and takes the same role as Hodhod in Manteq al-Teyr, and even more than that. Investigating the metaphor of gazelle in Shams divan, it is found out that gazelle is a metaphor of God first and foremost and, then, of Molavi himself, Shams, Salahedin, the Sage, the wayfarer, the beloved, the lover, the Substitutes, the soul and spirit and meanings.
