Abstract

 This paper explores the functions of LIGHT and the related visual clusters such as sun, candles, LIGHTs, and so forth in MOLAVI’s ghazals based on a cognitive theory of contemporary metaphor. “LIGHT” in the Divan-e-Shams indicates that “recognition and knowledge” is a visual concept and it can be regarded as a primary metaphorical MAPPING in the deep-structure of this work. Drawing on the same concept and the secondary MAPPING, “divine world is LIGHT”, MOLAVI has accounted “LIGHT” as God, perfect man, place, food and wine, guidance and hope. Furthermore, he has explained the subject of “existence and nonexistence” through this MAPPING. This metaphorical MAPPING paves the way for the analysis of MOLAVI’s abstract subjects and reveals intratextual coherence of the ghazals.
