Authors : Mehdi Rezaei and Azizeh Neidi

Abstract: Works of Persian literature arereplete with descriptions of the phenomena and landscapes of nature, among which the description of the horse has a special place. Horses have always beencompanions of human beings on trips or at home. This study describes the horse in several literary works from the fourth century to the contemporary period. Research shows that poetshave focused on hooves and horseshoes when describing the horse bodies and requirements. They have also used similein the imagery of the horse more than other literary devices. In addition, descriptions of the horse have always been associated with hyperbole and exaggeration so that this animal has been introduced asthe fastest and speediest animal and indeed as a mythic creature.
