Symbolism has been widely present in modern literature and poetry including the poetry after revolution. However, different poets have used symbolism, this magic element of literary imagination, in various ways and there are no exact researches related to symbolism. So, the present researcher decided to present the image of poetry of revolution and this way, investigated the amount of creativity and innovation of the poets in this period of time. The present research investigates the symbols and symbolism in terms of meaning and context. Some poets such as Hamid Sabzevari, Mohammad Ali Damghani and Ali Mousavi Garmaroodi have shown the national and myths symbols in terms of historical patterns specially history of sacred war period. Other poets such as Nasorallah Mardani, Alireza Ghazve, Abdull Jabar Kkaie, Gheysar Aminpour, Parviz Beigi habib abadi and Fateme Rakeiee have widely used symbols of mystic, literary, and entered the emotional aspects of war and investigated its reflection in cultural space of the society. Some people like Ahmad azizi and Bidelvare have used the symbols in their piece and finally someone like Seyed Hasan Hosseini have shown a different style by employing symbols as irony.
