Owhad al-din Ali ibn Mohammad ibn Ishaq Anvari Abiverdi, pen name Anvari, was one of the writers of ode in the district of Khorasan in the sixth century AH. He was, above all, known as a panegyrist. Anvari has long been recognized as a poet for his artistic utilization of the figure of speech ‘Hosn e Talab’ (enticing questions) though he sometimes demanded such inferior things as hay and barley for his stead; thus the assumption could be that he cared only for himself or the one praised and not about social issues. However, an investigation of his works indicates that he was not only aware of social issues but sometimes reflected upon social events in his poetry. Like a social critic, he has strongly criticized the weaknesses and difficulties of the society and his contemporary policy makers. The present study is an attempt to investigate and analyze Anvari’s views towards the society and politics of his own time which appear more in his segments and less in his odes.
