Abstract:   (4654 Views)

In the beginning of logic’s entrance to the zone of Islamic thought, philosopher`s problem was to answer what the poetry was; because they thought poetry was a part of logic. They tried to explain it and find out what the meaning of a poem was. Farabi is one of these philosophers. He explained poetry and determined its position. Farabi’s point of view encompasses the elements of poetry. Little attention has been made to this viewpoint of Farabi by scholars. This paper aims to know how Farabi defines poetry and what types of poetry are there and what the meaning of mimesis is in Farabi`s point of view.

Keywords: types of poems, Farabi, mimesis
