The literary works are of great importance in terms of reference to the historical events and reflection of the social, political and cultural statuses and discernment of the people’s mindset and psychology and, besides the historical references that are envisioned as direct resources, they are enumerated amongst the indirect resources. Exactly where the historians have exercised reticence and/or secrecy in real historical reporting due to certain expediencies, the poets and writers have shouldered their duties and explicitly and/or ironically pointed to those events and incidents and this has doubled the importance of those literary works. The present study aims at the investigation of the perspectives of Mongol era’s poets and writers about the huge incident of Mongols’ attack and their domination over Iran so that the intellectual, cultural and social declines of the then Iranian society can be revealed on the one hand and the literary men and poets’ reaction and attitudes towards this national catastrophe can be clarified on the other hand.
