عنوان مقاله [English]
This article aims at analyzing the discourse of love in poems of two prominent Iranian poets namely Sa’di and Ebtehaj in order to investigate how their worldviews are represented in this discourse through transitivity system and process types. Also, the differences and similarities between these two poets in this regard have been studied. The results show that material, relational and mental processes are the most common ones in the corpora analyzed in this article. However mental and verbal processes are more frequent in Sa’die’s poems while in Ebtehaj poems mental, existential and behavioral are more frequent.This shows that comparing to Ebtehaj, Sa'di puts more emphasis on sentiments and mental emotions in order to represent the romantic relationship in his poems, and he creates a more abstract space for his audience; the higher use of verbal process is due to the fact that this poet represents the romantic relationships In the context of the dialogue between the lover and beloved, the inner conversation of the poet, and also the narrative of love. On the other hand, the higher use of the material process in Ebtehajs's poems reflects the dynamic feature of his poems and his emphasis on the real world. Ebtehaj has also tried to represent the physical and emotional behaviors of the lover and beloved through the higher use of behavioral and material processes.
