Since ground shows the power of imagination in a poet, it is one of the most important elements of simile. In traditional books of rhetorics, ground has been divided into different categories such as sensitive and rational ground, real and imaginary ground, allegorical and non-allegorical ground. However in these works the relationship between the imaginary ground and the two sides of simile is less emphasized.
In many of his similes, Nima has made use of imaginary ground. In this article attempt has been made to analyze the ground with tenor and vehicle based on the Goteli table and from a new standpoint. What is remarkable in Nima’s imaginary grounds is the employment of imageries which can not only personify tenor or vehicle but also can more artistically personify both these elements.
