عنوان مقاله [English]
Resistance literature is the call to withstand during revolutions or in the eras of tyranny and the invitation to fight against an external, internal or even sensual enemy existing from the beginning of mankind. Authors have written this type of literature in all societies according to the culture of that society. This genre includes various manifestations, each of which has its own formal, linguistic and content features. One of these manifestations is the resistance poetry which has assumed a unique place among poetic genres due to its unique content and theme. This genre was welcomed by poets around the world, especially after the two World Wars. In Iran, this kind of poetry has long been practiced by poets, but after the onset of the Imposed War, the genre was further practiced and came to be known as Sacred Defense poetry. The present article thematically compares German Resistance poetry (about the two World Wars) and Iranian Sacred Defense poetry through finding and investigating the ideas used in them.
