The myth has a close relationship with art and literature, especially poetry; myths have to be expressed in the best and most talented words for survival, and for this reason they are manifested in poetry and literature, the most enduring and artistic level of human language. The poets promote myths, beliefs and dreams of ancient tribes and express their thoughts and intentions encouraging the dynamism and redefinition of myths in the reader’s mind. The reflection of myths is very impressive in Hazin Lahiji’s poetry; he has deep links with literature and national and religious culture, to the point where the link is reflected in his poems. This article aims to analyse the national myths in the poetry of Hazin Lahiji, a famous Indian style poet. The result of the research indicates that Hazin has used mythical characters for expressing his thoughts and ideas in such a way that national and mythical stories are restored and recreated in the mind of the audience; of course, Hazin uses myths to show disbelief, the lack of credibility of the world, and the failure of man to take advantage of the awesome power to denounce and condemn it.
