Palestinian resistance poet, Mahmoud Darwish, makes the most use of symbol in his poetry. One reason for the use of symbol by a poet is the social, political, and military conditions of the society in which he writes as a reformer.Seyed Ali MousaviGarmaroudi, the Persian resistance poet uses symbols as well. symbols in both collection of poems, i.e. "Under the Siege", and "Purple Dream", could be categorized into both positive and negative, with the difference that Darwish uses more meaningful and deeper ones. The audience has to go beyond surface meaning to recognize the true meaning; Garmaroudi's symbols, however, are parts (white and black) split, except that the symbols in the poetry of Mahmoud Darwish, have depth and greater meaning. His only apparent meaning interpretation does not rely on the audience to get the real meaning of the symbols through more, but Garmaroudi symbols are superficial. A reason for this difference could be the extent to which a society is suppressed. Due to the intense dominance of the Zionists, Palestinian poets must be cautious. This caution is also seen in Garmaroudi's revolutionary poems, but not in his Holy Defense poems.Darwish and Garmatoudi have similarities and differences in their use of symbols related to nature, animals, birds, and religious and national myths. Darwish, for instance, uses symbols related to color, politics, and industry, while Garmaroudi uses symbols for people, places, and prophets.
