Although Hafez is a true master in almost all figures of speech, however his utmost art and the characteristic of his poetry find expression in his puns. The scope of this literary device in his poetics particularly taking into account the newly found puns becomes so extensive that it transcends the typical classification of puns in academic rhetorical textbooks. This technique also renders his “garden of imagination” more colorful.
This article is concerned with the introduction of variety of puns as well as the two newly found ones. Examples are given for each kind from the poetry of Hafez.
