    Abstract:
    This monograph does not represent the 1979 Revolution as a rapture in Persian poetry, rather it sees the continuity; Shams demonstrates that Islamic Republican poetry was in fact in the making decades before the Revolution. In its study of war poetry, this monograph remains focused on official poets alone. For an understanding of other (official) poets who wrote on the same subject one can refer to Seyed-Gohrab’s Martyrdom, Mysticism and Dissent. Shams and Seyed-Gohrab have started the serious study of official poets and paved the way for scholars aiming to further investigate the enigmatic relationship between the Islamic Republic and the conformist poets who align with its ideological apparatus.
