The inevitable fact of this world that no one can deny is “Death”. No matter what religion a person belongs to, every living soul has to taste death. Western and Eastern Poets have their own views on this bitter reality. In Persian and English literature, we find many poets who have shed light on the philosophy of mortality in their thoughts. Saadi and W.H Auden are also among the poets who presented philosophy of death from their own perspectives. This research is aimed at comparing the differences between the thoughts and ideas of these two poets regarding the philosophy of death and drawing the similarities in their ideologies. This research will be significant in exploring the various similarities and commonalities found in other poets of East and the West.
