عنوان مقاله [English]
During the five hounded year rule of the Ottoman Empire in Bosnia and Herzegovina, there were poets and writers appeared who wrote their works in Persian, imitating Saadi, Jami, Rumi, and other famous Iranian poets and who have left behind valuable and beautiful works. Without a doubt, Fewzi Mostari (18 century) is one of the foremost writers who wrote his valuable work Bulbulistan imitating classical Persian works. The main objective of this paper is to put Bulbulistan into intertextual connection with other works of classical Persian literature.Regarding the use of themes and motifs from other works, it can be said that Fewzi mostly used Jami's Baharistan, although his work also has some thematic similarities with Saadi's Gulistan. In addition to Baharistan, Fewzi for his stories took ideas, thoughts and themes from Jami's Nafahat al-Uns (Breaths of Fellowship). Also, he took motives and topics from other sources like Tadhkarat al-Awliya(Memoirs of Saints) by Fariduddin Attar, and the famous Sufi work Kashf al-Mahjub, whose author is Ali Bin Uthman al-Hojwiri. All the stories and thematic units that were taken over Fewzi incorporated in his work with certain thematic and stylistic expansions.
