There are nonaesthetic themes of injury, sickness, blood, pain and death in the poetry of Nima Yushij, pioneer of Persian modern poetry. The aim of this essay is to show how these themes are represented, via contemplation on his poetry, and also to find out the implicit meaning in these images.
The method used in this study is analytical which aims to pass through merely formal aesthetic interpretation, being based on the literary themes existing in this issue. First, it tries to depict how these works could be as a representation of slaughter and bloodshed, based on Mashruteh discourse and analyze Nimaꞌs poetry in this discourse. Second, it aims to interpret presence of sick bodies as a sign of democracy and presence of minority voices.
Theoretical principles are based on contemplation of thinkers like Charles Baudelaire and Linda Nochlin. It tries to depict lack of body’s cohesion and entirety in Nimaꞌs poetry as a metaphor of absence, according to Nochlinꞌs view of injured and sick bodies. This absence has created modern world without cohesion, entirety and certainty. It aims to discuss sickness and death experience in Nimaꞌs poetry based on a relationship between artist’s sensitivity and that of the patient, according to Baudelaire.
Finally, it emphasizes that injury, sickness and death’s image in art doesn’t mean as decay and non-existence, it means “new birth”. In other words, we can understand a new meaning of art and beauty, via nonaesthetic themes.
