The study of the Nima Yooshij’s poems shows that there are so many common aspects between imagery in his poems and imagery in classical Iranian poems. This can be seen in his traditional and semi-traditional poems because of his tradition approach in these kinds of poems. Reviewing Nima`s free poems also showed that some of the images of traditional and semi-classical poems have found their way into this kind poems, because they have common usages and backgrounds in the classical poems. This fact is also true about poems of the other contemporary poets. But some other parts of the classical images in the Nima`s free poems are likely the result of his contemplation and thought in the poems of predecessors. Consequently, some similes, metaphors and less-known ironies have found their way into his poems. In this paper, we try to analyze various aspects of this image borrowing concerning the poems of the 38 classical Iranian poets. So we will answer this main question: how much did images of previous poets influence Nima’s imagery?
