This short, technical article provides samples of the formal and thematic similarities between the works of two fourteenth-century Persian poets, Nasir of Bukhara and Salman of Saveh, from their emulation at the courts of the Ilkhan and Jalayri Mongol princes to their later correspondence. For the first time, multiple illustrations are given of the similarities of their work, from the viewpoint of rhythm (wazn) especially, the two poets having directly responded to each other in many circumstances and on many subjects.
