The perspective of these poets to these questions,based on their own philosophy, seems radically different some have a positive point of view whileothers have a negative one. Studying the concept of death and life, in a comparative process, byusing examples from their own main works, is the base of our study.Key words: death, life, Sepehri, Akhavan, Farrokhzad, Youshidj, Shamlou.
