The effect of Romantic outlook of Iranian Contemporary poets has been influential on the type and scope of dealing with mythology. The poets, through mythopoeia and mythoclasting have promoted the revolutionary and evolutionary spirit of the people. This paper, following the method of content analysis, studies the mythological interests of Ahmad Shāmloo, and concludes that shāmloo evolves the original versions of myths, and even introduces some myths of his own, in order to make a better use of their social capacities. Shāmloo’s reforms can be justified by the features of Romanticism which in its turn is a good explanation of some aspects of his poems.
