Mythology as one of imagination tools and also as one of the most significant elements of rhetoric has been used since the early usher of Persian poetry, though with its own ups and downs. Mythology has a different and significant role compared to previous ages especially during the first decade of Islamic Revolution (Sacred defense period). Since the analysis and investigation of this role has not been written yet, the present research tries to investigate translate and metaphoric roles through a simple and systematic design. In addition, it presents the position and statue of the poets who are in line with Islamic Revolution. In this paper, it is also shown that: poets and orators of the period are not at the same level due to the experience and creativity and qualitative and quantitative efficiency of the myths. Some reach this level through recreating old patterns and integrating them with historical samples in a splendid language which is an integration of modern expression and Khorasani (a category of Urdu). Some others put a step forward and narrated some value symbols (abstract or conceptual) of their passionate history. Finally, a group of poets did not implement this magic element of imagination and their poetic symbols lack the visionary ambiguities of mythology.
