عنوان مقاله [English]
نویسنده [English]چکیده [English]
The writer of this article, first of all, defines the inevitable relation between literature and society, explaining the reflection of social conditions on this relation-although literature is not considered as a full-size but as a magic mirror of the society which reflects merely caricatures of the facts. Then, the writer intends to define logically "the generative economic work songs", describing the popular songs and their various types and traits. Afterwards, he tries 10 determine the position of generative work songs among the other kinds of popular songs and define the relationship between any kind of these songs and other cultural sectors. Finally, the writer attempts to clarify the history, backgrounds, and functions of these songs and explain how they have gradually been neglected and disappeared. A number of work songs related to the farmers who work on rice-fields of the Northern Provinces have been presented at the end of the article.
