Persian Poetry and Wine in its Place

Ali Mamkhezri, Kamran Pashaee-Fakhri, Parvaneh Aadelzadeh


In the Persian literature “wine” is divided in to three sub-categories:  mystic, true and literary. The true wine is used in texts, where the intention is to show the pleasures of life, whereas in some philosophical and mystic texts such as the story of Zartosht and Goshtasb, drinking wine and Haoma juice. results in achieving knowledge and cognition and being prepared for making important decisions .Sometimes it was only used ritually and not drunk and this made them to discover the unseen and unknown secrets. Therefore, on can classify the true wine- which is also called natural win - in to two groups: natural festive and natural Hikmah/philosophical wines. Basically, they differ in their usages. The first one drunk for joy and pleasure and the second one to reach knowledge and cognition.
