Title variants
Languages of publication
Two poets mourning the death of their poet friends are Sepehri and Spencer in different contexts of Iran and England. The two poets who are dead are Forough and Sidney who have been great poets and have been admired by the mourning poets. To remember their friends, they have written poems to enliven the memory of their dead friends. Sepehri considers Forough, a female Iranian poet, a friend and a great poet. The methodology of this article is based on comparative literature with the emphasis on American school of comparative literature which considers aesthetics and attention to critique and analysis. This school regards literature as a universal phenomenon and in relation to other branches of human knowledge and fine arts. This school does not accept any boundaries in the field of comparative literature and believes in the study of literature as a whole, and compares literature with other arts and human sciences. The followers of this school believe that comparative literature is a method that broadens the view of man in the study of literary works and is an approach to go beyond national boundaries and believe the study of literary phenomena is between two or more different literatures or the study of the relation between a literary phenomenon and various sciences
